PHOENIX – Despite objections from newspaper publishers, a House
committee endorsed two bills Thursday that would allow local governments
to publish public notices online rather than in newspapers.
Rep. David W. Stevens, R-Sierra Vista, chairman of the House
Technology and Infrastructure Committee and author of one of the bills,
said communities shouldn’t have to pay newspapers to publish notices
when they can be posted on their websites or in other public forums.
