Hooray! Finally, the Arizona Legislature wrapped up what will likely go down as one of the worst sessions, at least in recent history. Our air, land, water and wildlife took some significant hits and our health and future will suffer – unless we can turn it around. Now is the time to turn the tide and make sure legislators who do not support environmental protection find something else to do. Look for the environmental report card to come out in the next two weeks for details on how legislators voted on key environmental issues. Hold them accountable.
