PHOENIX (AP) -

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer now has on her desk a series of bills passed by the state Legislature during its last day of session.

The Legislature adjourned around 1:45 a.m. Thursday, although legislators are likely to come back soon for a special session to deal with the new child welfare agency.

But before all that happens, Brewer will have to take action on several bills approved in both chambers. She already has taken action on several controversial bills, including vetoes for two gun bills that would have allowed guns in government buildings and that would have punished cities and towns that enact gun ordinances stricter than the state's own laws.

The bills approved Wednesday and Thursday deal with regulating Uber and with allowing optometrists to prescribe some drugs.
