The speaker of the Arizona House says he won't hear a bill that makes participating in or helping organize a protest that turns into a riot an offense that could lead to criminal racketeering charges.

The Arizona Senate has given initial approval to a proposal that would allow concealed-carry permit holders to carry guns into many public buildings.

The state Senate passed a bill Wednesday that would make it a crime to organize a protest that turns violent. Arizona Public Radio’s Ryan Heinsius reports, Republican lawmakers say enhanced measures are needed. 


The Arizona Senate has voted to require doctors who perform abortions to try to revive the fetus if it shows any sign of life and have equipment on hand to do so.

Backers of Senate Bill 1367 said the legislation is needed to ensure that babies born alive are given life-saving care. Opponents say fetuses can't be saved at the stage when abortions are legal, but backers contest that claim.
