PHOENIX (AP) — The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors is again refusing to buckle to pressure from Arizona Senate Republicans and turn over equipment and ballots from November's general election.
The Republican-dominated board on Tuesday let a noon deadline for complying with a Senate subpoena pass.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Warren Peterson warned of "serious legal consequences" if the board continues to drag its feet.
Peterson says the Senate is drafting a contempt resolution against the board for failing to comply with the subpoena.
Tuesday's developments come as the Senate and board remain stuck in a standoff prompted by Democratic President Joe Biden's victory in the state.
