The State Senate Makes It Official
The Arizona legislature has been in session since January 8, and much has happened since then, including the Senate Confirmation of Arizona Department of Housing Director Carol Ditmore. On January 22, the Senate Commerce and Public Safety Committee voted unanimously to approve the Governor’s nomination of Director Ditmore and on January 23 she was unanimously confirmed by the full Senate. On January 22, the legislature also opened a Special Session to address the Opioid Epidemic with a final bill sent to the Governor’s Office just three days later.
The Arizona Department of Housing is monitoring a number of bills that pertain to issues effecting the Department, but in all matters remains neutral on bills that are under consideration by our State officials.
By Rule, the legislature is to have completed its business for the year by the 100th day of the session, which is April 17.
