Hundreds of protesters gathered at the Arizona Capitol in Phoenix Monday demanding that Governor Doug Ducey lift restrictions on businesses meant to slow the spread of the Coronavirus.

Biologists looking for endangered species on private property would be required to keep much of what they find secret under a proposal poised for quick approval by the Republican-controlled Arizona Legislature.

Governor Doug Ducey has ordered flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff until sunset Tuesday in honor of a fallen soldier from Peoria, Arizona. U.S. Army Private First Class Antonio Garcia died Sunday morning during a training accident at Fort Stewart, Georgia. Garcia joined the Army last year.
