PHOENIX (CBS5) -

The Arizona House will hear three Arizona job creation bills this week.

The bills are sponsored by freshmen Democratic lawmakers.

The legislation includes:

House Bill 2584 addresses renewable energy and conservation districts. It was introduced by Rep. Andrew Sherwood, D-Tempe (District 26). The legislation will be heard Monday afternoon.

The bill will make it easier for businesses to add solar panels and other energy and water efficiency technology to property by providing financing for the upfront costs of those modifications, Sherwood said.

House Bill 2621 is sponsored by Rep. Juan Carlos Escamilla, D-San Luis (District 4).

"State Parks are integral to economic development and provide over 3,300 jobs, many of which are in Arizona's rural communities," Escamilla said.

The bill is slated to be heard at 2 p.m. on Tuesday.

House Bill 2484 could help up to 3,600 veterans find work. It's a measure sponsored by Rep. Mark Cardenas, D-Phoenix (District 19). The legislation will be taken up at 9 a.m. on Wednesday.
