The Arizona Legislature is now online, making available bills with status and full text, committee agendas, floor calendars and biographies of members.

Brook Rosenbaum, federal relations director for Associated Students, said that ASUA will use the service extensively to obtain voting records and in lobbying for student financial aid.

According to Senate President John Greene's office, Arizona residents and students can watch the legislative process in action, using the service to follow the status of bills.

This is a continuation of the numerous reforms this leadership has made in the past three years to open up the legislative process so the residents of Arizona may observe their government in action," said House Speaker Mark Killian, R-Mesa, District 30.
