The Arizona Legislature adjourned last week without a Senate floor vote on Rep. Lesko's (R-Glendale) controversial House Bill 2789. This bill, as amended in the Senate, would have prohibited the State from increasing its existing renewable energy standard, which was adopted by the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) in 2006. HB 2789 was actively opposed by Arizona's renewable energy industry and was unconstitutional in the opinions of both the ACC's legal division and Legislative Council. Although it passed the House (in a different version) and both Senate Committees to which it was assigned, the bill was never placed on an agenda for a vote by the full Senate -- presumably under the direction of Senate Majority Leader, Sen. Steve Pierce (R-Prescott).
