Bills filed for 2011

The guns-on-campus bill is back. And John Kavanagh has a new plan to stop an education association from using taxpayer money to influence elections.

Both proposals were among the 20 bills that lawmakers had filed as of Dec. 22 in anticipation of the upcoming legislative session, which will kick off Jan. 10. Most of the early bills call for technical changes to state statutes.

But Kavanagh’s bill already has riled public education advocates, and some may consider the measure retaliation for the Arizona School Boards Association’s opposition to a ballot measure this year that would have gutted First Things First.

And Harper’s bill replicates legislation that failed in four previous sessions, though the Tea Party wing of the Legislature has grown considerably and may look more favorably on a proposal that would allow college administrators, professors and support staff to carry guns at work.
