Ducey signs bill to withhold revenue from cities that violate state law, constitution

don't break lawBy Jeremy Duda | Arizona Daily Star

Gov. Doug Ducey signed a bill that would punish cities by withholding their portion of state-shared revenue if they pass ordinances or policies that violate state law or the Arizona Constitution.

Under SB1487, any legislator can ask the Attorney General’s Office to investigate an ordinance, regulation or other policy enacted by a city to determine whether it complies with state law. If the attorney general determines that a policy does violate the law, cities would be forced to either reverse the policy within 30 days or lose the shared revenue they receive from the state, which would be redistributed to other cities.
