PHOENIX — An Arizona Senate committee will vote on a bill that would
require the state to reimburse the city of Glendale for some public safety
expenses after next year’s Super Bowl.
House Bill 2547 would require the state to reimburse Arizona cities for up to
$2 million of public safety costs for hosting major events.
The 2015 Super Bowl will be played in the University of Phoenix Stadium in
Glendale officials said threats to safety such as the Boston Marathon bombings
last year have increased costs of security at major events.
Friday is the final day for Arizona legislative committees to review bills
before they go to both full bodies.
