Arizona Legislature

The Arizona Legislature adjourned on March 23rd with the hope of reconvening on April 13th to finish the session, but this week it was decided that it would not be safe to return April 13th. No new date of return was announced, only that members would be given ample notice before they are called back into session. Prior to adjourning, the Legislature approved an $11.8 billion emergency budget that included almost no new spending other than $50 million in emergency funding to address Arizona’s efforts against the coronavirus. The Governor has indicated he does not believe this will be the only funding the State puts toward fighting the coronavirus.
