Updated March 28: Gov. Doug Ducey today signed the budget bills into law.

“I commend legislative leaders of both parties, and all the Republican and Democratic members who shaped and passed this package, for coming together, putting politics aside, and showing real leadership,” Gov. Ducey said.

“It’s reflective of what we are seeing all across our state — Arizonans uniting to slow the spread of COVID-19 and save lives,” Gov. Ducey said.

“Our job isn’t done with this package of budget bills. There will certainly be more work to do and many tough decisions ahead of us as we better understand the full impact of this crisis on our citizens and on our economy,” Gov. Ducey said. “But Arizona is once again showing what it means to come together and put the good of our citizens before partisanship or politics.”

The budget bills include $50 million to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.
