Arizona Legislature Wraps up with Wins for Birds, Water, and Public Lands

The budget negotiations went on for weeks. Then, over the long Memorial Day weekend, Arizona Republican lawmakers (who control the Senate, House, and the Governor’s seat), suddenly struck a deal and wrapped up the 54th Legislature, 1st Regular Session.

Audubon advocated for (or in some cases, against) several bills directly and through our network—we testified in committees, talked directly with lawmakers, and engaged partner organizations. And our Western Rivers Action Network (WRAN) members sent more than 3,000 letters and e-mails to state and federal lawmakers to let them know we support actions that protect precious water resources and the habitat birds need.

Check out this blog by Audubon Arizona's Policy Manager, Haley Paul, for the full list of laws we advocated for or tried to stop—and how they concluded.
