The article comments on the various functions expected from the state governors in the U.S. particularly in the case of Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano to send troops to guard the border between the country and New Mexico. Napolitano has vetoed the funding bill and refused to implement her own order. It was speculated that the legislature had the exclusive power to make appropriations and no public funds could be spent without its approval.
