Proposed transfer of state geologist

Governor Ducey’s proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2017 transfers the Arizona Geological Survey (AZGS) to the University of Arizona effective July 1, 2016.

In the last legislative session, Senate Bill 1200 attempted to restore the mineral museum by transferring its assets to the AZGS. The bill received nearly unanimous support in both the House and senate, but the Governor vetoed it.

How the proposed transfer of AZGS to the UA would affect attempts to restore the mineral museum is unknown.
