Eight months ago, we made history.
Well, we finally adjourned for the session this past week – no, really! The 2017 legislative session is officially in the books.
We voted on the budget last week, into the night on Thursday and early Friday morning. Here’s how it went down.
Well, after over 100 days at the capitol, the budget might finally, potentially, suddenly be here this upcoming week. What should we expect from Governor Ducey and the majority?
After the toughest week of the session so far, last week was tame in comparison. Call it the calm before the storm of budget season, which could be upon us. Or it could not. Who knows?
I have no words to describe what last week at the capitol felt like. However, I’ll try to explain what happened.
We are closing in on the 100-day mark at the state capitol, which usually means the state budget (and adjournment) is right around the corner. But maybe not this year…
Last week was the final week to hear bills in committee, which means the session is moving mainly to floor votes and then the eventual work on the state budget.
Another quiet week at the capitol last week, with only a few dozen bills debated and voted on from the floor. Know what this means? It’s budget time!
A quieter week at the capitol last week, compared to most. I’m not expecting it to stay that way, however – this week should be a return to normal, with several controversial bills rumored to make their return.
