The Arizona Legislature has adjourned its 2017 session after an unusual nine-hour day that ended just before nightfall and saw about 15 bills sent to the governor in a final push.

The Arizona Legislature is expected to push to adjourn its 2017 session following the passage of a $9.8 billion budget for the coming fiscal year.

The Arizona House has passed the budget package, and it now moves on to the desk of Republican Gov. Doug Ducey for his anticipated signature.
