Prop 120 Arizona

Post by roc2rol » Tue Oct 23, 2012 9:35 am

PHOENIX (Reuters) - When voters in Arizona go to the polls next month, they will be asked to decide a landownership tug of war: Should the Grand Canyon belong to all Americans, or just the residents of Arizona?

A controversial ballot measure backed by Republicans in the state legislature is seeking sovereign control over millions of acres of federal land in the state, including the Grand Canyon.

Proposition 120 would amend the state's constitution to declare Arizona's sovereignty and jurisdiction over the "air, water, public lands, minerals, wildlife and other natural resources within the state's boundaries."

Wondering if anyone as any insight on this measure?
I haven't read the bill
and probably wouldn't understand all the ramifications,
anyway

My gut is kind of against it

Just wondering of others reactions

Thanks
Ed
