The La Paz County Board of Supervisors submitted support for Sinema’s La Paz County Solar Energy and Job Creation Act in today’s subcommittee hearing
WASHINGTON – The La Paz County Board of Supervisors submitted written support of Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema’s bipartisan La Paz County Solar Energy and Job Creation Act ahead of today’s Senate Energy and Natural Resources Subcommittee on Public Lands, Forests, and Mining hearing. The La Paz County Board of Supervisors wrote that Sinema’s bill will create jobs and help facilitate a clean energy future for Arizona.
“I’m proud to continue partnering with La Paz County to create good-paying Arizona jobs, boost affordable energy, and ensure La Paz County’s economy continues to grow,” said Sinema.
Sinema’s bipartisan La Paz County Solar Energy and Job Creation Act transfers 4,800 acres of Bureau of Land Management land to La Paz County at fair market value for economic development including solar energy projects, creating jobs while boosting affordable, renewable energy.
While in the U.S. House, Sinema championed a La Paz County Land Transfer of 5,900 acres. Last year, Sinema helped that land transfer pass into law.
Senator Martha McSally cosponsored Sinema’s legislation and Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar introduced a companion bill in the U.S. House.
