Gov. Jan Brewer acted on about two dozen bills on May 10, signing most of them into law.
Brewer approved H2282, sponsored by Litchfield Republican Rep. Steve Montenegro, which requires local governments, beginning in January 2013, to establish and maintain websites that would show a comprehensive report of all revenues and expenditures over $5,000.
She also signed H2246, which allows for the sale and use of small fireworks, such as sparklers. The bill also requires the State Fire Marshal to adopt rules about the sale of consumer fireworks, allowing a civil penalty for the use of prohibited fireworks.
The bill was sponsored by Rep. Andy Biggs, a Republican from Gilbert.
Brewer also approved a proposal that spells out the rights of parents over their kids’ health care, education, and upbringing.
The measure, S1309, was authored by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Gray.
