Thursday is a deadline day at the Legislature as most Arizona House and Senate committees finish considering bills.
Each chamber’s Appropriations Committee will consider bills next week but the other committees by and large will done after clearing out a backlog of work Thursday.
That backlog includes measures on topics ranging from photo radar and selection of judges to gun rights and tax rates.
Some of those measures include brand-new proposals as well as legislation being revived as so-called “strike-everything amendments” on unrelated bills.
With the end of this week, lawmakers will continue working on a new state budget while the full House and Senate consider all the bills that cleared committees.
