The state legislature is in full work mode now that the session has begun. Representative Bob Thorpe dropped a few bills this week, one is raising a few eyebrows. HB 2256 would make sure that any records stored on a private cell phone, computer or social media account of a public official or employee are not required to be disclosed. The bill comes on the heels of a Court of Appeals decision that says public officials can’t hide public business by using their own cell phones, texts, emails and social media messages. Another bill would require a public vote to raise city and county property taxes. If approved and signed into law, cities like Flagstaff who want to raise property taxes would have to go to the people for a vote. Thorpe is also dropping a bill that would create a dark skies specialty license plate for Flagstaff.
