Arizona judge voids 2009 law
PHOENIX, Arizona: On October 30, 2009, an Arizona Superior Court Judge ruled that a law, passed in 2009, violates the state constitution. The law, which requires Pinal County to have a 5 member board of county supervisors and to elect two members in 2010, goes against the part of the Constitution that bans “local or special laws,” according to the judge.
Arizona law requires that a county with a population of more than 200,000 must have 5 county supervisors. Pinal County had under 200,000 people at the time. The law was passed by legislature earlier this year.
