A new piece of legislation introduced this session calls for the state to determine the feasibility of formation of a new county.

HB2253, sponsored by Rep. Walter Blackman, R-Snowflake, proposes a committee to examine county boundaries and whether it’s possible to form Arizona’s 16th county within the existing borders of Apache and Navajo counties.

The bill proposes a 13-member committee and states, “The committee shall research and report on the fiscal and related impacts of a change in the county boundary line between Apache county and Navajo county to create a new Sitgreaves county.”
