PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona lawmakers were voting on dozens of bills in both the House and Senate Thursday as they conclude the furious initial six weeks of the session and push to move proposed laws out of their respective chambers.
Among the contentious bills given initial Senate approval were a series of election law revisions and a resolution that would ask voters to reject unconstitutional federal actions.
Other bills approved by the Senate include one requiring clear labeling on medical marijuana in foods or candies and a bill requiring schools to stock injectable epinephrine for emergency use if a student has a severe allergic reaction.
Among the measure passing the House was one creating a border intelligence center and another requiring police to be trained on how to deal with the mentally ill.
