H2062: PERMITS; LICENSES; DENIALS; AGENCY HEARINGS

In any case in which a license is required before a person engages in any constitutionally protected activity, a state agency, county or municipality would have been required to specify in clear and unambiguous language the criteria for approval of a license unless the criteria is established by federal law. In any court proceeding involving a denial of a license application for constitutionally protected activity, a court would have been required to determine whether the language was clear and unambiguous unless the criteria is established by federal law. The applicant for a license involving constitutionally protected activity would have been entitled to a review and determination of the approval or denial of the license application by the appropriate entity within 30 days after the application was submitted unless another period of time is specified by law or rule. Unless knowingly and voluntarily waived by the parties, all agency hearings would have been required to comply with either the uniform administrative hearing procedures prescribed by statute or the rules of procedure and rules of evidence required in judicial proceedings. The burden of proof in all agency hearings would have been the preponderance of the evidence. AS VETOED BY GOVERNOR. In his veto message, the Governor stated that parties to a dispute should be able to come to a resolution as simply and efficiently as possible, and that parts of this legislation would create significant barriers to the administrative hearing process.

H2110: UNIVERSITIES; GOVERNING BOARDS

Establishes the Governing Board of Arizona State University, the Governing Board of the University of Arizona, and the Governing Board of Northern Arizona University to provide direct oversight of each university. All three governing boards consist of three members appointed by the Governor, one member appointed by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and one member appointed by the President of the Senate, and each governing board is required to elect a chairperson from among its members. Each governing board is a body corporate with perpetual succession, and powers and duties of the boards are established. Governing board members are not eligible for compensation, but are eligible for reimbursement of specified expenses. The role of Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR) throughout various statutes is deleted and replaced by the governing boards, including the power to appoint and employ university presidents and other staff, to fix tuition and fees, to establish curricula, to award degrees and diplomas, to prescribe admission qualifications, and to adopt budgets. Repeals and replaces the powers and duties of ABOR, requires ABOR to meet twice each year to review the actions of each governing board, and states that the responsibilities specifically prescribed in statute are the only responsibilities of ABOR. Each governing board, instead of ABOR, is an annual budget unit for the purpose of state budgeting. Each governing board terminates on July 1, 2028. Session law provides for the governing boards to succeed to the authority, powers, duties and responsibilities of ABOR and for the transfer of appropriated monies and properties. Effective January 1, 2019. Due to voter protection, one section of this legislation requires the affirmative vote of at least 3/4 of the members of each house of the Legislature for passage.

H2501: PTSD; WORKERS' COMPENSATION; PRESUMPTION

For the purpose of workers' compensation, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is presumed to be an occupational disease and deemed to arise out of and in the course of employment for a "first responder" (defined) if a list of specified conditions apply, including that a licensed mental health professional determines that the first responder has PTSD resulting from the performance of his/her job duties. The list of circumstances under which the state and political subdivisions are required to provide licensed counseling to a public safety employee is modified to include the use of deadly for or being subjected to deadly force in the line of duty regardless of whether the employee was physically injured (previously applied only to peace officers), witnessing the death of another public safety employee while engaged in the line of duty (previously applied only to firefighters), and in the case of a firefighter or peace officer, being exposed to a psychologically traumatic event or series of events in the course of employment. The list of public safety employees subject to this requirement is expanded to include a rescue or ambulance worker who is a member of any public retirement system. Employers are prohibited from requiring public safety employees receiving treatment under this program to use paid time off and are required to allow the employees to select their own licensed mental health professionals. The repeal date of January 1, 2023 for the licensed counseling requirements is deleted. AS PASSED HOUSE.

If the Director determines in any watershed or subwatershed that there is insufficient water to maintain, improve and restore ecological water, the Director is required to take all steps necessary to appropriate unappropriated water sufficient to maintain the ecological water requirements, and to purchase, lease or accept by gift or assignment existing water rights and transfer all acquired rights for beneficial use supporting ecological water. The Program terminates July 1, 2028.
