A new piece of federal legislation has been introduced which would allow La Paz County purchase more land held by the Bureau of Land Management for solar power developments. The La Paz County Land Solar Development and Job Creation Act of 2021 was introduced by Arizona U.S. Dist. 4 Rep. Paul Gosar and Arizona U.S. Senator Kyrsten Sinema on March 2.

If passed, the act would allow the county to purchase up to 4,800 more acres in addition to the 5,900 acres conveyed to the county by the BLM in the La Paz County Land Conveyance Act of 2019.

This a bipartisan effort, as Gosar is a Republican and Sinema is a Democrat. Co-sponsors in the House of Representatives Dist. 5 Rep. Andy Biggs, Dist. 6 Rep. David Schweikert and Dist. 8 Rep. Debbie Lasko.
