AZ legislature sends more than 100 bills to Ducey's desk

PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Legislature has adjourned its 2016 session after a marathon 18-hour day that ended at dawn and saw more than 100 bills sent to the governor in the final push.
 
The session ended Saturday much like last year's -- with hours of waiting amid calls of poor leadership and anger at gamesmanship.
 
But unlike the 2015 session, election bills that were a top priority of Republican leadership were sent to the governor.
 
On Saturday, the Legislature passed bills that relax rules on anonymous political spending in time for the August primary election. Another restored some criminal penalties that were left out of a sweeping campaign finance bill passed earlier this year.
 
They also passed measures cracking down on protesters who block roadways and ending greyhound racing in the state.
