Phoenix considers ban on housing voucher discrimination 

Arizona Republic

A group of about 20 residents gathered outside Phoenix City Hall on Wednesday and called on elected leaders to follow in Tucson’s footsteps and pass an ordinance banning landlords from discriminating against renters who use government assistance.

Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego and the City Council appear willing to do so and are awaiting word on the subject from Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes. Mayes is reconsidering a legal opinion her predecessor issued in December, shortly before leaving office, that declared Tucson’s ordinance violates state law.

“Phoenix is closely following the passage of Tucson’s ordinance for fair housing,” Gallego said in a statement to The Arizona Republic.

Gallego and seven council members sent a letter to Mayes on Jan. 27 that demonstrated an openness to adopting an ordinance like Tucson’s.
