One of the core functions of government is to keep our communities safe. This year I sponsored and championed HB2133 which increases government transparency and protects our communities.

Today, Governor Ducey will be holding a bill signing ceremony for HB2133 which prescribes specific public notification requirements for the Department of Corrections before they open a new correctional facility.

With the help of amazing neighborhood leaders Ann O’Brien and Julie Read, we passed HB2133 into law. Now, moving forward there is a true statutory process for public notification.

I want to thank everyone who took time out of their busy schedule to advocate for this common sense legislation. As your representative, I will always do what I can to protect our communities and make government agencies more transparent.
