Committee members suggest that the contribution of water softeners can be addressed first

Focusing on voluntary limits, the head of the Arizona Salinity Committee suggested last month that legislative solutions may not be attempted in the upcoming 2013 session.

Rep. Karen Fann, who spearheaded the creation of the committee, said she will only run a bill if there is a good product that has been vetted by all stakeholders and has enough support to have a 90% chance of passing. Otherwise, a bill should not be introduced until 2014, she said. 

These developments came at a meeting of the Technical Advisory Subcommittee of the committee.
