How about this: I am currently working with a few state legislators,
and another associate of mine (the LPNH chair) has held several
appointments from the Governor to various duties. We are crafting
liberty-oriented bills and getting them put before the legislature. 

One of these has already passed the House and Senate, in two different
forms, is currently undergoing revision in the House to conform to the
Senate version, and will then go to the Governor. This is a bill to
eliminate the need for concealed weapons permits in the state, and to
issue permits to people who wanted them, for reciprocal carry out of
state. This is our success. We have more bills in the pipeline.

If we could get a bill passed that gave legal protection to people
freely choosing cryonics as a viable alternative to conventional
funerary options, would Alcor move here if Arizona became no longer
feasible? If so, what measures would Alcor want to see in the bill?
