State Senator John Kavanaugh to Pitch Law for Harsher Penalties on Protesters Who Block Arizona Highways

Kavanagh's proposed bill would raise criminal penalties for those who block Arizona’s

highways, explaining his legislation will make protesters who “block a highway, bridge, or tunnel for more than 15 minutes after they’ve been told to leave” guilty of a Class 6 felony. If found guilty, those convicted face a recommended sentence of one year in a state prison. The lawmaker told Arizona Capitol Times he determined to craft the legislation after a November 16 protest blocked the Bay Bridge in San Francisco for hours.
