McGuire mining bill signed into law

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – A bill that removes an unnecessary roadblock for operating mines was signed into law last week.

House Bill 2133, sponsored by Rep. Barbara McGuire, D-Kearny (District 23), ensures that mines throughout the state are not penalized by the Environmental Protection Agency for weather abnormalities that lead to inaccurate readings of air pollution by the mine.

“This bill is incredibly important to Arizona’s mining communities because it bulldozes an unnecessary hurdle for mines that produce jobs for rural Arizona families,” McGuire said. “It’s a simple fix and I was proud to work with mines in eastern Arizona to get the job done.”
