2019-session-wrap-cover-for-twitterArizona Capitol Times is the leading source of political news from the state Capitol and beyond. We highlight the important issues of the moment, from a non-partisan and well-researched perspective that is critical to our readers. Our coverage influences policy, defines important issues and connects the various communities that make up state government.

The newspaper covers state politics and policy with a focus on the daily activities of the Arizona Senate, Arizona House of Representatives and the state’s top elected officials, including the Governor’s Office. Reporters also cover elections, court rulings and the actions of local governments. The paper regularly features commentaries, letters to the editor, an event calendar, legal notices, people-in-the-news pages, listings of state contracts, an Arizona news roundup page and political news from other states.

The newspaper is published weekly on Fridays, and is updated by the minute as news breaks. The newspaper was operated as The Messenger and Arizona Legislative Review before taking the name Arizona Capitol Times in 1982. In 2005, Arizona News Service, which includes Arizona Capitol Times, was purchased by Minneapolis-based Dolan Media Company, Inc (later renamed The Dolan Company). And, in January 2016, The Dolan Company was purchased by GateHouse Media and renamed BridgeTower Media.

The Arizona Capitol Times also publishes public notices that are required by law to be published in a newspaper of general

circulation that is adjudicated. Public notices describe activity of public interest and concern and report

activity or planned activity by government, including the courts. Public notices that are published in the Arizona Capitol Times include: property sales and 
auctions, corporations and partnerships, civil cases, conservators and adoptions, and wills. In addition to publishing public notices, the Arizona Capitol Times also offers affidavit filing services, statewide publication services and full-service corporate filing with the Corporation Commission or Secretary of State’s Office.
