The Arizona House wrapped up its work for this year’s regular session Thursday.

As expected, lawmakers approved a bill to limit the liability of businesses, churches and others in COVID-19 related lawsuits. That vote came along party lines, with Republicans in favor and Democrats opposed.

The Show spoke with Howard Fischer of Capitol Media Services about what happened and what comes next.
