This *should* be the last week of regular committee consideration of bills, but are ways around that. No proposal is really dead until the lege adjourns sine die.
Also, I'm not a bookie, but if I was, I'd set the initial over/under at eight.
Eight, as in the number of Republican members of the AZ lege who will aid and abet the violent acts if Cheeto is actually indicted..
Note: HHR refers to a hearing room in the House building; SHR refers to one in the Senate building.
Note2: Generally, I'll only specify bills that look to spread propaganda. Other bills may be more conventionally bad (think: corrupt or other misuses of public monies and/or authority. My recommendation is that if an agenda covers an area of interest to you, read the entire agenda.
Note3: Each chamber's respective Rules Committee meets on Monday, the House's in HHR4 at 1 p.m. and the Senate's in Senate Caucus Room 1, also at 1 p.m. Both committees serve as rubber stamps for bills leadership wants to be advanced and gatekeepers for measures that leadership wants stopped.
Note4: Meeting start times may be listed, but are flexible. Before journeying to the Capitol or viewing the meeting online, verify the start time.
Note5: Watch for strikers, or strike everything amendments. Those involve inserting language that replaces the entirety of a bill. Those can be introduced at any time and can make a previously harmless bill into a very bad one.
On Monday, 3/27
House Health & Human Services meets at 2 p.m. in HHR4. 12 bills on the agenda, including strikers for SB1278 and SB1285. Both could be problematical, but 1278's seems worse - it would usurp some municipal authority.

House Military Affairs & Public Safety meets at 2 p.m. in HHR1. Eight bills on the agenda, including strikers for SB1068, SB1136, and SB1608. The striker to 1068 would require trained EMTs to provide medical assistance, and ambulances to transport, police dogs injured in the line of duty.

House Commerce meets at 2 p.m. in HHR3. Five bills on the agenda; most bad or simply propaganda.
House Education meets at 2 p.m. in HHR4. Seven or eight bills on the agenda. Not all qualify, but many are bad or simply propaganda. There is a bit of a discrepancy between the posted agenda, which lists seven bills, and the lege's website, which has eight -
SB1699 is not on the agenda, but if it is considered by the committee, a striker has been offered for it. The amendment would change the bill into one pertaining to the licensing of anesthesiologist assistants.
House Natural Resources, Energy & Water meets at 2 p.m. in HHR1. Six bills on the agenda; strikers will be offered for two of them. The striker for SB1104 would remove the ability of the Arizona Corporation Commission to regulate the use of clean energy resources by public service corporations. Would also add nuclear energy to the list of clean energy resources.
Looks like it was written by a lobbyist for and energy production corporation.

On Thursday, 3/30
