The Arizona House on March 9 killed a measure that supporters say is a priority of the governor and a must-have bill for the Department of Transportation.
Republican Sen. Karen Fann of Prescott sponsored SB1211, which would make a long list of changes to the Department of Transportation. The bill is scheduled for a “reconsideration vote” giving the sponsor one last chance to get it out of the House.
The measure was supported by the Department of Transportation, the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the League of Arizona Cities and Towns and other influential forces at the Capitol, and seemed like a sure bet to make it to the governor’s desk.
