PHOENIX — The Arizona Senate is returning on Friday to “sine die,” ending the session.

It was announced in a statement Thursday from Senate President Karen Fann.

She says the decision was made after talking with members of the state Senate and House.

She adds there was a strong consensus that this was the right move in order to address important issues.

Fann says the Senate will now turn to addressing the health of Arizonans and economy recovery.

Legislative business that does not directly support the mission will be set aside, according to Fann.

Arizona's lawmakers will identify the solutions necessary to accelerate our economic recovery while working to ensure that the constitutional liberties of all of Arizona's citizens are preserved, according to the statement.

It’s unclear when members of the House are expected to follow suit.
