PHOENIX (AP) - A House committee is set to hear a bill allowing cities, towns and counties to regulate sober living homes.

The measure by Rep. Noel Campbell of Prescott allows local authorities to register sober living homes, adopt health and safety standards and set management qualifications. It would also give cities, towns and counties the authority to shut down sober living homes that violate regulations.

Campbell said cities and towns such as Prescott need more information about sober living homes.

Campbell ran a similar bill to regulate sober living homes through the Department of Health Services last session. It failed to pass in the Senate.

The Committee on County and Municipal Affairs is set to hear House Bill 2107 on Monday morning.
