Legislation that goes past concerns from nearby towns to the incorporation of San Tan Valley is now up to Gov. Ducey for signature or veto.

The Senate passed House Bill 2088 on a 28-1 vote Thursday after the House approved the bill sponsored by Republican Rep. Eddie Farnsworth.

The bill removes a legal provision permitting an existing city or town within six miles of a proposed incorporation to block it. Opposition from Florence and Apache Junction and the League of Arizona Cities and Towns has kept the more than 100,000 residents in San Tan Valley from becoming a city.

Information from various news outlets.
