Being off topic I don't think so. Ariz could end  up like Michigan you want 
to use the public parks to observe it'll cost you  $5.00 a night you want a 
sticker on your vehicle so you don't have to bother  with it That could cost 
anywhere from $50.00 to $100.00 a year. Now they  being the "Gov't and knowing 
Republicans all my life and how they operate if you  want to use the National 
forest and other public lands, you could end up paying  a whole lot more. 
Face it people we are losing our rights and freedoms and that  includes going 
to Dark Skies to use your telescope. I don't believe this is  off topic for 
this forum. Now if you don't like the way this topic is going to  speak up now 
so the rest of us can stick our heads back in the sand! This  landslide 
election favoring the Republicans is a signal to the power brokers  that 
in general want to be safe and don't care about freedoms. This  Republic is 
degenerating into an Empire! For all practical intents we are an  empire. We 
lack an absolute Ruler. Now I'm going to stick my head back in  the sand and 
be a good little citizen.

I'm not sure posting search results here would be appropriate in  
Az-Observing. I gave my opinion. You gave yours. Since you disagree with  
my opinion, why don't you go into more detail on what you found out so  
we all can learn. For example, your statement that our congress is not  
too pleased with the intent of the bill doesn't say much. All of  
Congress, or just all Republicans, or just all Democrats, and what  
Republicans, Democrats, all the bill, just parts of it, etc.? Further,  
talk is cheap. It's their final vote that counts, which hasn't taken  
place yet on extending the Demo program. I certainly am not one who  
thinks I know everything (I do sometimes misinterpret what I have read),  
and am always willing to learn. So I encourage you to go into more  
detail, so long as others on the list don't feel they are "Off Topic",  
which I think my post would have been, or come close to it, if I had  
gone into much more detail than I did.
