The "rocket docket" calendar of this legislative session (compared to previous years) is mercifully coming to an end. Most Arizona legislative committees hit last day:
Thursday is a deadline day at the Legislature as most Arizona House and Senate committees finish considering bills.
Each chamber's Appropriations Committee will consider bills next week but the other committees by and large will be done after clearing out a backlog of work Thursday.

With the end of this week, lawmakers will continue working on a new state budget while the full House and Senate consider all the bills that cleared committees.
This House of Horrors can't shut down soon enough. "No man’s life, liberty, or property are safe while the Legislature is in session.” — Judge Gideon J. Tucker, Final Accounting in the Estate of A.B. (1866).
