A Yuma lawmaker on Friday started the short-lived process of initiating an attorney general investigation into whether the City of Somerton violated state law by charging a local church a fee for a building permit.

Republican Rep. Don Shooter quickly withdrew the complaint on Monday after word spread that city officials are working to fix a local zoning ordinance that conflicts with state law.

The complaint was filed under SB 1487, a 2016 law that allows lawmakers to require the attorney general investigate alleged violations of Arizona law or the Constitution by municipalities.
