Arizona Legislators To Debate A Bill To Reimburse Glendale For Public Safety Expenses Following Next Year’s Super Bowl

Arizona legislators will debate a bill that would require the state to reimburse the city of Glendale for some of its public safety expenses following next year's Super Bowl.
House Bill 2547 would require the state to reimburse Arizona cities for up to $2 million dollars of public safety costs for hosting major events. The House will debate the bill by Republican Representative David Gowan of Sierra Vista today (Monday 3). The 2015 Super Bowl will be played in the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale. Glendale officials say threats to safety such as the Boston Marathon bombings last year have significantly increased the cost of security at major events. The bill applies to major events that have city selection committees, at least $14,000 attendees and are broadcast on live television.
