Voters in Arizona say the most significant factors in choosing their home state are the healthy, outdoor lifestyle and a clean environment. Voters there also point to the ability to live near and enjoy public lands as significant a factor as economic opportunities. Arizonans also strongly support a proposal to protect more than one million acres of existing public lands that surround the Grand Canyon.
