PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Senate has given final approval on a bill that would allow electronic billboards in some areas of Mohave County where they are now banned to protect the state’s astronomy industry.

Senate Bill 1114 would allow areas of Mohave County within 40 miles of Bullhead City to become exempt from a 2012 law that limits electronic billboards to central and southwest parts of Arizona.

The measure marks sponsor Republican Sen. Sonny Borrelli’s second attempt at adding parts of Mohave County to the areas where electronic billboards are allowed. A similar bill by him failed to pass last year.

The Senate’s 20-8 vote Tuesday sends the legislation to Gov. Doug Ducey’s desk because the House already approved it on a 35-18 vote last week.
