Arizona Senate Bill 1149, a proposed bill to assist the National Hockey League’s Arizona Coyotes with a new arena in the state, appears dead as the 2017 legislative session has been extended, but the bill is currently listed as adjourned on the legislative website.

While the bill is listed as adjourned, a spokesperson for District 20 Rep. Anthony Kern said that it still could come to a vote, but is not expected.

After a first scheduled attempted vote Feb. 28 was removed from the schedule and no vote taken, if it is not voted on during the extension, it would have to be re-introduced during the next legislative session, unless it is included in the state budget.
