Benson city leaders say a bill moving quickly through the Legislature gives too much power to a landowner seeking tax-exempt bond financing for a proposed 28,000-home master-planned community.

At least three Benson City Council members say HB 2568 would give Phoenix developer El Dorado Holdings Inc. decisive control over an improvement district to help fund public infrastructure in the Villages at Vigneto development. The project could bring 70,000 more people to the tiny town in Cochise County.
