Bills introduced in Arizona Legislature

The Arizona Legislature convenes on January 9 for the 2012 session. Here are bills filed so far that I found that may be of interest to the geoscience community:

HB2025 Water supply disclosure in home sales
Beginning January 1, 2013, a subdivider who sells one or more lots in a subdivision located outside of an active management area shall record a document that contains a statement of water adequacy or inadequacy for that subdivision.
HB2086 Mining & mineral museum; restoration
[AZGS] shall maintain a mining and mineral museum as the state depository for collecting, and cataloging and displaying mining artifacts and specimens, of various ores, gemstones, lapidary material and equipment and other valuable documents relating to mining and minerals mineral specimens.
HCR2007 Vulture Mine Day
Legislature proclaims the first Saturday of each January as Vulture Mine Day and encourages Arizona citizens to recognize and learn about this important part of our state's heritage.

    I have been told within the last few days that the Vulture Mine has been sold and a company has purchased it to mine. Whether the mining artifacts will still be open to the public in the future I cannot say. This could be a long time in the making if the mine is to produce and it may only be a rumor.
