2017 Arizona Legislative Session Getting Into Full Swing

The 2017 legislative session is getting into full swing, with bills starting to move through their committee hearings.

To go over what this week may hold at the State Capitol is Ben Giles, who covers the Senate for the Arizona Capitol Times.

And, as the session really gets going, Senate Republicans have released what they’re calling their “ majority program.”

The program is basically some broad goals in areas including economic development and job growth, education, transportation, public safety and border security.

To talk about that is Senate Majority Leader Kimberly Yee.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
