Arizona House approves bill funding big events

PHOENIX -- The Arizona House of Representatives has passed a bill that requires the state to reimburse the city of Glendale for some public safety expenses after next year's Super Bowl.

House Bill 2547 by Republican Rep. David Gowan of Sierra Vista requires 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.

Glendale officials say threats like last year's Boston Marathon bombings last year have increased costs of security at major events.

The bill applies to major events that have at least 14,000 attendees and are broadcast on live TV.

The bill passed on a 33-25 vote Wednesday over opposition from some Democrats and Republicans.
