Arizona's Department of Transportation recently closed 13 of the state's 18 rest stop areas, because each rest stop costs about $300,000 to operate. The state hoped that doing this would help close a $100 million budget gap.
A state legislator is fighting to allow entities other than the state to reopen and fund these rest stops, however. The bill would allow local governments, American Indian tribes and private groups to pay the costs to operate the areas. The proposal has a support from both Democrat and Republican legislators.
