Governor vetoes State Parks bill

Gov. Jan Brewer this week vetoed a bill that would protect Arizona State Parks from legislative sweeps of its gate and concession revenue. In her veto message, the governor concluded the language of the bill was too broad and promised to work with the bill’s sponsors to draft an alternative. The legislature approved the measure in part to satisfy objections raised by the federal Bureau of Land Management, which leases land to the state for several of the 28 parks in the system.
