Talks broke down yesterday in the effort to come to an agreement on how to get Arizona schools more than $1 billion they say the state owes them.

It’s the latest in a lawsuit, which the schools won after they argued lawmakers shorted them money during the recession.

Steve Zylstra is president and CEO of the Arizona Technology Council.
