Thursday could be busy for lawmakers

It could be a busy day for Arizona lawmakers.

Dozens of bills and resolutions are scheduled for legal reviews, and that could put them on the agenda for consideration by the full house on Thursday afternoon.

Among them are two measures asking voters whether to repeal the state’s public campaign financing system or whether to adjust Arizona’s cap on state debt.

Lawmakers also could consider a bill reversing health care cuts in order to comply with the recently enacted federal health care overhaul.

A fourth measure that could be considered is a business-backed proposal to levy a special assessment on employers to pay for increased costs of unemployment benefits.
