Late this afternoon, a state Senate committee passed the 'strike-everything' bill HB2251 (i.e., a replacement bill), 4 to 3, that moves the Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum from the Arizona Dept. of Mines and Mineral Resources to the Arizona Historical Society to become the Centennial Museum.
There were two hours of contentious testimony this afternoon and some Senators spoke how conflicted they were over their votes. In the end, Committee Chair John Nelson cast the deciding vote but noted that unless the stakeholders work out their differences on the bill, he does not want it to come to the Senate floor.
I have lots of notes that I will try to summarize later when I get home from the hearing.
