PHOENIX (AP) -- Arizona legislators are pushing to end their 2011 regular session and that end could come late Tuesday -- or early Wednesday morning.

The House and Senate completed action on dozens of bills on Monday but dozens more are still alive in the legislative process.

Action completed Monday included approving two referendum questions for the 2012 general election ballot -- one on judicial selection and one on campaign funding.

The Senate also completed action on a major bill to change public employee retirement systems. That measure goes to Gov. Jan Brewer.

Brewer on Monday vetoed two high-profile bills.

One would have allowed guns on rights of way of higher education campuses. The other would have required presidential candidates to submit documentation of their qualification for office.
