A bill that would protect Arizona State Parks revenue from legislative sweeps skipped over the Senate Appropriations Committee on Tuesday, taking it one step closer to becoming law.


“State parks should be open and public, and Representative Fann’s legislation makes the right first step toward that,” said Bret Fanshaw, an advocate for Environment Arizona. “We just hope the same legislators voting to support state parks will follow through when it comes time to actually do the budget.”
