Ducey faces water policy dilemma in Cochise County case

Water finalBy Howard Fischer | Capitol Media Services/Arizona Capitol Times

The fate of new development in Cochise County cities could depend on how Gov. Doug Ducey feels about creating exceptions to existing water supply laws.

On a 33-25 margin, the state House gave final approval Thursday to lifting a key barrier in the path of a Sierra Vista developer. SB1268 lets any city in that county or Yuma County opt out of a county ordinance which requires developers to show a 100-year supply of water.

A final Senate vote is needed before the bill goes to the governor.
