Burges sworn in as newest senator
Burges, who has been a lawmaker since 2005, became the Senate’s newest member later in the afternoon, when she took her oath of office and was promptly escorted to her new seat.
In an amicus brief, Speaker-elect J.D. Mesnard, Senate President-elect Steve Yarbrough and Gov. Doug Ducey’s Office of Office of Strategic Planning & Budgeting told the Arizona Supreme Court that Proposition 206, will impose a “significant hardship” on the Legislature and Arizona’s taxpayers.
