State legislative session as you see it

Posted: Updated:

CBS 5 News wants to hear your thoughts on the state legislative session.

The Arizona Legislature ended this year's session after 101 days.

The Senate and House of Representatives ended the session around 1:45 a.m. Thursday after a short impasse over a bill renewing several state boards.

Gov. Jan Brewer has already signed or vetoed more than 200 of the bills passed by the Legislature. She notably vetoed House Bill 1062, which would have allowed businesses to discriminate against gays and others based on religious views.

The Legislature also approved a series of pro-gun bills. The governor signed some but vetoed others that would have allowed guns in government buildings and that would have punished cities and towns that enact gun ordinances stricter than the state's.

Another major issue this session was the attempted expansion of the state school voucher program.

Tonight in an accountability special report, "Politics at Play", CBS 5 News will dive into Arizona politics to see what's really going on. Tune in at 10 p.m.
