Now we’re going to check in with the Editorial Board of The Arizona Republic. It’s a regular segment where we talk about the big issues facing the state and the region — featured in the newspaper’s Viewpoints section.

Last week, the Arizona Legislature completed its special session on the opioid crisis, and Gov. Doug Ducey signed the Arizona Opioid Epidemic Act into law.

Legislators had approved the act unanimously, but there have been some concerns expressed about its provisions, particularly from seniors.

The Arizona Republic published an editorial about that, and the paper’s Editorial Director Phil Boas is with me for his weekly appearance to talk about it.
