Attorney General Mark Brnovich has opened an investigation into Maricopa County’s failure to comply with valid and enforceable legislative subpoenas as requested by Arizona State Senator Sonny Borrelli.
Senator Borrelli made the request last week after Maricopa County officials defied a Senate subpoena.
If a violation is found, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors will have 30 days to resolve it. If they fail, “the Attorney General will notify the State Treasurer, who shall withhold and redistribute from Maricopa County state shared monies”.
The Attorney General’s Office requested a written response from the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 20, 2021.
Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers shared this news on Twitter.
The Arizona Attorney General sent this letter to the Maricopa Board of Supervisors on August 6th. I can also confirm there is an open 1487 Investigation listed on the Arizona Attorney General website. Now we wait 30 days.
