After weeks of political ping-pong, Arizona legislative leaders have agreed to a budget plan.
The budget deal came together Monday morning, and by mid-afternoon, a six-member conference committee approved and sent the spending plan to the full House and Senate.
The committee was composed by three senators and three representatives.
The spending plan includes an extension of district sponsored charter schools for one more year, funding them with $24.5 million. There are also some additional dollars for the state's three public universities, and language spelling out the Legislature's intent to fund a new child protection agency.
Democratic state Rep. Eric Myers told majority Republicans he doesn't like the plan.
The weeks of budget wrangling in the Legislature has created a log jam of other proposals, and a flood of bills is now expected to hit the floors of both chambers for final votes.
The House and Senate will likely cast a final vote Monday evening.
