Another state versus cities bill advances in Senate

state v citiesBy Howard Fisher | Capitol Media Services/Arizona Daily Sun

Unable to block local “living wage” laws, state senators voted Tuesday to stop local governments from telling employers they have to provide everything from paid sick leave to pensions.

The voice vote came over objections of Democrat lawmakers, who said it’s none of the state’s business whether city councils and county boards of supervisors decide that private firms need to provide certain fringe benefits.

But Republicans said it’s inappropriate for any level of government to impose conditions at all on business.
