PHOENIX - The Arizona Legislature's border security advisory committee is working on a plan on how to use $275,000 in contributions it has gathered.
The Arizona Republic quotes Republican state Rep. Steve Smith from the community of -Maricopa as saying the Legislature's Joint Border Security Advisory Committee is working on a plan and expects to get started within a few weeks. He wouldn't say what the plan will be.
State law requires that money raised for this fund be used to "construct and maintain a secure fence" along the Arizona-Mexico border.
There are more than 200 miles of Arizona border the committee would like to better secure with fencing.
No fences have been erected as part of the state effort.
