PHOENIX (AP) Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has promised to stop taking $30 million in transportation money annually from the state's cities and counties to balance the state's budget.

The Arizona Republic reports Ducey's promise came on Oct. 25 at an event sponsored by the County Supervisors Association of Arizona.

The state has dipped into shared transportation money from the Highway User Revenue Fund to pay for the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

Traditionally, that money has been used by counties and cities for highway construction and street projects throughout the state.

The state's decisions to cut or divert funds forced deep cuts to county and municipal services. Some counties say they can't afford to fix crumbling roads. Others can't hire enough sheriff's deputies. At least two counties are teetering on the brink of bankruptcy.
