Arizona Lawmakers Mull Selling Capitol For Cash
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Arizona comedians and talk show hosts will be dining out on this proposal for years. Lawmakers are desperate for state budget money, so they could try the real estate market. They are considering putting the state House and Senate buildings up for sale. The state would then lease the buildings from the new owner. Anybody who ever thought the state legislature was up for sale may soon be able to say that it really is.
It's MORNING EDITION.
