Arizona Senate Bill 1167 was sponsored by Sen. Steve Yarbrough (R-21) and Sen. John McComish (R-20) and introduced to the Senate on January 19, 2011. It was approved in both branches of the legislature and signed by Gov. Jan Brewer (R) on April 18, 2011.[1]


SB 1167 set a deadline for challenges to referendum petitions. After the referendum has been filed with the Secretary of State, opponents have 10 days in even years and 20 days in odd years to file an action challenging the sufficiency of the referendum. The bill gave the Maricopa County Superior Court jurisdiction over these challenges with appeal to the Arizona Supreme Court. The bill also gave Speaker of the House and President of the Senate the right to intervene as a party in the case.[1]
