PHOENIX (AP) — The Pima County Board of Supervisors has rescinded an expanded eviction moratorium enacted early this month after two Republican state lawmakers asked the Arizona attorney general to review whether it was legal.

The 3-2 vote by the board at Tuesday’s meeting avoids the potential loss of state shared revenue the county would have faced if Attorney General Mark Brnovich agreed with the GOP lawmakers. Sen. Vince Leach and Rep. Bret Roberts alleged the county ban violates state law because it blocks evictions that aren’t covered under a federal eviction moratorium. The board will consider the ban again next month.
