The Arizona Senate today is poised to vote to hold the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in contempt, for failing to turn over election materials lawmakers had demanded in a subpoena.

It’s the latest move in a back-and-forth between the two GOP-majority bodies over the Senate’s desire to conduct an audit of November’s presidential election.

And on Thursday, the Senate Ethics Committee will proceed with its investigation of a complaint against new state Sen. Wendy Rodgers (R-Flagstaff). Meanwhile, the House is considering a resolution to expel Rep. Mark Finchem (R-Oro Valley) over his role in the Jan. 6 riot in Washington. 

For more on those stories and what else is to come this week at the state Capitol, The Show spoke with Howie Fischer of Capitol Media Services.
