The Arizona Attorney General’s Office says 28 public officials broke the law by advocating against a clean-energy ballot measure during last year’s election and is offering them a chance to settle for $225 each.

Six rural towns and counties, as well as utility regulator Andy Tobin, used their public offices to oppose Proposition 127, which was heavily opposed by Arizona Public Service Co.

Had voters not rejected the measure in November, it would have required half the electric company’s energy to come from renewable sources by 2030.

The Attorney General’s Office, after launching investigations into the matter in October, offered settlements to Tobin and officials from the towns of Pinetop-Lakeside, Snowflake and Chino Valley, and Gila, Navajo and Greenlee counties.
