Terry Goddard, Tom O'Halleran Say Revised Meth Bill Won't Stop Illegal Labs

(Phoenix, Ariz. - May 11, 2005) Attorney General Terry Goddard and Rep. Tom O'Halleran said changes made today by a legislative conference committee to the comprehensive methamphetamine bill passed by the House of Representative fall short of doing enough to stop meth production in Arizona.  

The amended version of SB1473 now awaits final legislative action.

"This stripped-down bill is a victory for the pharmaceutical lobbyists and a serious defeat in Arizona's fight against the meth epidemic," they said in a joint statement.

“This legislation ensures our children continue to receive an education while the financial situation is resolved,” Goddard said.  “It provides an effective tool to take over school districts where public funds are being mismanaged.”
