Senate passes anti-abortion bill
Backers defended the legislation by saying Arizona law already prohibits the use of public funds for abortion. The bill, for them, reinforces this position.
In an amicus brief, Speaker-elect J.D. Mesnard, Senate President-elect Steve Yarbrough and Gov. Doug Ducey’s Office of Office of Strategic Planning & Budgeting told the Arizona Supreme Court that Proposition 206, will impose a “significant hardship” on the Legislature and Arizona’s taxpayers.
