Tobin assigned the package of ten Senate budget bills to the Appropriations Committee on Tuesday. He expects the House to finish work on the entire package by early next week.
The move comes nearly three weeks after the Senate passed the budget with Brewer's Medicaid plan attached and less than a month before a budget must be in place.
Tobin was trying to cut a deal on Medicaid that included provisions he wanted. But he says the governor was not receptive to his plans.
