    It's still a year away, but preparations are well underway for Super Bowl 49 which will be held right here in Arizona. It takes thousands to get one of the biggest sporting events off the ground -- and the host committee is looking for some help. FOX 10's Ty Brennan reports.

PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Senate has failed to pass a bill that would help the city of Glendale cover public safety costs during the next Super Bowl.

The Senate on Tuesday voted down House Bill 2547 which would require Arizona to cover half the costs Glendale incurs for the 2015 Super Bowl at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Officials say previous threats to safety at other venues such as the Boston Marathon bombings have increased security costs.

The bill by Rep. David Gowan of Sierra Vista initially would have reimbursed the city up to $4 million. But amendments watered down the bill, and it now would only stand for one year, meaning it would benefit only Glendale.

Republicans and Democrats said it was unfair for the entire state to foot the bill for Glendale.
