The Sierra Club's Grand Canyon Chapter has released its annual legislative report card. Nothing new: All but one Republican flunked, while most Democrats got A's and a few were knocked down to B's, C's or D's.

Sierra Club lobbyist Sandy Bahr notes:

This year’s Legislature tried exceedingly hard to move our state backwards on environmental safeguards, public lands, and conservation of endangered wildlife. Instead of taking actions to better fund and protect our parks and conserve wildlife habitat, Arizona will now be studying how to take over federal public lands, a concept that has been soundly rejected by Arizona voters and vetoed by a previous governor. Arizonans love public lands and do not want to see them sold off and developed. Public lands are a big part of our tourism economy and provide enormous benefits from watersheds to wildlife habitat to recreation.
