State lawmakers returned to the Capitol this week with the pandemic and political turmoil weighing on the new legislative session. Both issues featured prominently in Gov. Doug Ducey’s State of the State address. In a speech that lasted about 20 minutes, Ducey called the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol "sickening" and said Arizona would do its part to "bind up the nation's wounds." On the pandemic, which he called the most significant threat facing Arizona, Ducey defended his decision to not issue new restrictions in response to the surge in cases and hospitalizations. Days following his address, Ducey sat down with Lorraine Rivera to discuss his approach to the challenges ahead and clarify some of the statements made in his speech.
