It’s crunch time for legislative committees

Arizona legislators are in a crunch time in their 2012 regular session.

This is the last week for most House and Senate committees to consider bills, and many committee agendas for this week are packed with legislation recently approved by the other chamber.

After this week, legislative action will be dominated by House and Senate floor action on bills and by work on a new state budget.

Lawmakers hope to end the session in April.
