Bill to assert sovereign authority over Arizona natural resources

There's an intriguing final paragraph in the Arizona Republic's preview of the Arizona Legislature session that begins tomorrow:

"A trio of northern Arizona Republicans will push a measure to give Arizona sovereign authority over the state's air, water, public lands, minerals, wildlife and other natural resources. It's an attempt to shun federal rules and regulations on natural resources."

We've heard some chatter about this since the summer but have not seen the details. Stay tuned...
