Brewer signs 87 more bills, including Allen’s med mal

Gov. Jan Brewer on July 10 put her signature on 87 more bills, the second and third batches of non-budget bills she has signed since the Legislature adjourned sine die.

Brewer’s office announced the signing of 43 bills early in the afternoon, and announced another 44 signings later in the day. The bills dealt with a wide variety of issues, ranging from the release of information by Child Protective Services to the issuance of specialized Arizona Cardinals license plates in the first batch, and microbrewery production, religious freedom at public schools and tax credits for renewable energy in the second round.

In the second batch, Brewer also signed legislation that raises the burden of proof for medical malpractice lawsuits, enacting legislation that had been introduced in four consecutive legislative sessions by Sen. Carolyn Allen, a Scottsdale Republican.

Absent from the list were a number of high profile or controversial bills, including several involving abortion and gun rights. Brewer has until July 13 to sign the bills that were transmitted to her when the Legislature adjourned on July 1.
