A proposed law to set up formal state warning of border dangers had border towns declaring the real danger was how it would scare off more business. Now they don’t have to worry about that bill anymore. The bill’s own sponsor has agreed to kill it.

Willcox State Representative Peggy Judd says the first time she saw a newspaper story about her bill she didn’t even recognize the law she proposed.

She says the bill was never meant to set up a border red zone. She says the legislature’s lawyers added the boundaries. And it was never supposed to declare the area dangerous and issue general warnings, just set up e-mail warnings you’d have to subscribe to.

    Let me know if these things are still going on. They sound like something quite a few gangplanker’s might be interested in. I would love to help promote if they are still happening.
