PHOENIX — The Arizona House of Representatives Thursday passed a bill harnessing smart water management to drive economic development and housing availability in Pinal County.
This follows passage of the bill by the Senate on Wednesday.
A product of several years of discussions, the bill sponsored by Sen. T.J. Shope, R-Coolidge, implements locally driven solutions to encourage smart and efficient residential development.
“I am proud to sponsor this bill as it is critical to Pinal County’s economy,” said Shope in a statement. “This will conserve water while protecting the county’s continued growth, and it allows people in cities and towns great flexibility to protect their community.”
