A hearing is set for Wednesday, February 10, in the Arizona Senate Government Committee for SB1440, the bill that would transfer the Arizona Mining & Mineral Museum from the Arizona Historical Society to the Arizona Geological Survey. The museum would be redesignated as the Arizona Mining, Mineral, and Natural Resources Education Museum. [Right, view of the displays in the former mineral museum that closed in 2011.

The hearing starts at 2 pm, in Senate Hearing Room 3 at the Capitol in Phoenix. However, it is near the bottom of the list of 20 bills being heard, so it's not certain they will get through the entire agenda tomorrow.
A similar bill was approved by the Legislature last year but vetoed by the Governor over concerns about plans for opening the new museum.
