Plan B

Following the veto of the mineral museum restoration bill (SB1200), some former mineral museum supporters now favor the new plan to move the collection to Tucson and into a new UA museum.  They believe (correctly) that nearly any state agency is better equipped to preserve the mineral collection than the AHS is. However, details for this plan are not yet well defined.

Will control of the collection actually be transferred to the UA?

Or, will the UA and the AHS simply be room mates in a new Tucson museum with the AHS remaining in control of the mineral collection?

Finally, are the planners aware that the state statutes must be revised to transfer control of the collection from AHS to the UA?
