Following a year of turmoil, the next legislative sessions kicks off on Monday, Jan. 11.

Republican Gov. Doug Ducey has faced criticism of his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic from Republicans and Democrats alike. Although Republicans held onto their majorities in the Arizona House of Representatives and Senate, there’s disunity among both parties’ caucuses.

What issues will the legislature attempt to address? And how successful will leaders from both sides be in drawing support for their causes?

State government and politics reporters Andrew Oxford and Maria Polletta join this week's episode of The Gaggle: An Arizona politics podcast to preview the upcoming session with hosts Yvonne Wingett Sanchez and Ronald J. Hansen.
