Az GOV Katie Hobbs Reveals West Valley Current Water Supply

Every new home built by a developer in Arizona must be able to show that it has 100 years of assured water supply.

On Monday, in her State of the State address, Governor Katie Hobbs revealed a large area of the far West Valley is far short of that requirement and accused former Governor Doug Ducey's administration of keeping the information secret from the public.


Hobbs said former Governor Ducey's office instructed ADWR to keep the report under wraps from the public.

"I do not understand, and do not in any way agree with, my predecessor choosing to keep this report from the public and from members of this legislature. However, my decision to release this report signals how I plan to tackle our water issues openly and directly," Gov. Hobbs said.

Arizona..Water/Saudis..AZ AG Mayes

AZ AG vows to repeal saudi farm-deal..but wait..CAN she? Extensive write-up..well done..Montini is an AZ treasure..

Mayes might be able to help with the Saudi deal, but thatís only part of the problem. If Arizona lawmakers donít act soon the business interests draining the stateís aquifers will continue to do so until the cows come home. While the spigots in our homes run dry.


Arizona should not be giving its water away to the Saudi Arabians, or anyone else for that matter. Yet, for the past seven years, the attorney general and governor have allowed a Saudi company to pump out more than $38 million worth of groundwater from La Paz County for free.

The sitting governor will chair the task force, which will include of the secretary of state, one county recorder nominated by the president of the state senate, a county recorder nominated by the Arizona house speaker, an election official from a city or town nominated by the League of Cities and Towns, among others.

I am thrilled Gov. Hobbs is so hands-on..but then, we knew this was her MO..so much more at link...
