Arizona: State Preemption Bill Scheduled for Hearings

Senate Bill 1291, the state preemption bill, is scheduled for two hearings next week. The first hearing is in the Senate Committee on Federalism, Mandates and Fiscal Responsibility on Tuesday, February 10, at 9:00 a.m., in SHR 3 of the State Capitol. The second hearing will be in the Senate Committee on Public Safety, Military and Technology on Wednesday, February 11, at 9:00 a.m., in SHR 1.

As previously reported, SB 1291 will improve the state firearms preemption law to ensure consistency throughout the Grand Canyon State. This is done by providing a mechanism to declare unlawful regulations null and void in addition to providing penalties for knowing and willful violations by localities.  SB 1291, introduced by Senator Steve Smith (R-11), is a much-needed protection and will ensure compliance with existing state law.

Please contact members of the Senate Federalism, Mandates and Fiscal Responsibility Committee as well as the Senate Public Safety, Military and Technology Committee and politely urge them to support SB 1291.
