DALLAS - The Arizona House passed a measure on Wednesday to allow the creation of a special regional taxing district that could issue up to $750 million of revenue bonds to finance a rock 'n' roll-themed amusement park between Phoenix and Tucson.

The House approved an amended SB 1450 on a 39-to-17 vote. The bill, which the Senate passed March 20 by a 17-to-11 margin, will be returned to the upper chamber to reconcile minor differences between the two versions. A final decision in the Senate is expected within two weeks.
