Gov. Jan Brewer’s signatures on two last bills complete action on hundreds of pieces of legislation approved by state lawmakers during their 2012 regular session.

Brewer signed the last two bills on Tuesday, the deadline.

In all, she signed 363 bills and vetoed 26 others.

Those Brewer signed included bills to impose new abortion restrictions and loosen a requirement that health plans to cover contraception.

Other bills she signed provide business tax breaks and change the state personnel system.

Bills vetoed included ones on allowing guns in public buildings and demanding the federal government turn over large expanses of public land to the state.
