Arizona Bulk Transmission Cultural Resource Assessment(11-AZ)

The Arizona Antiquities Act of 1960 [1] protects archaeological and paleontological resources on state lands by requiring prior authorization to excavation or collection on state lands [2] and prohibits defacing of site or objects on state lands. [3] Institutions, organizations or corporations undertaking archaeological work on state or local lands are required to obtain a permit from the director of the Arizona State Museum (ASM). [2] All discoveries, including archaeological, paleontological or historical site or object that is at least fifty years old, or human remains and funerary objects, on state lands shall be reported to the director of the ASM. [4]

The State Historic Preservation Act of 1982 [5] requires the effects on cultural properties be considered at all levels of planning and development by agencies on state lands. Under this act, landowners are also required to report findings of human remains or funerary objects to the director of the ASM. [6]
