Arizona House to try again to reach budget deal

PHOENIX - The Arizona House of Representatives will try for a third day to reach a budget agreement following talks that failed to conclude with a final deal.

Closed-door negotiations on changes to the $9.2 billion state budget passed by the Senate last week ended without a deal Tuesday evening. A handful of Republicans in the House were negotiating with Republican Speaker Andy Tobin to try to get their concerns addressed.

The members who blocked a vote Monday were most concerned about funding for a new child welfare agency and a provision retroactively stopping school districts from converting schools to charters.

Member briefings were planned Wednesday on proposed changes in advance of an afternoon floor session.
