PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona House’s newly elected members are getting a head start.

About a third of the 60 representatives taking office in January will be newly elected lawmakers, and most are just starting to learn their way around the Capitol and through the lawmaking process.

The Arizona Capitol Times (https://goo.gl/HLlqrz ) reports that a two-day House orientation course conducted last week included a tour of the building, chances to meet key staffers and hands-on training on how bills become laws.

Incoming Majority Leader Steve Montenegro says the new leadership team wanted to provide a broad array of training.

It included a seminar to brief families of incoming lawmakers on the legislative process and to let them know that lawmakers will sometimes have to work into the night.
