PHOENIX (AP) — The Phoenix airport would be barred from adding fees to ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft under a proposal introduced in the Arizona Legislature.

The proposal from Republican Rep. Travis Grantham is designed to prevent new fees Phoenix wants to impose even if the state Supreme Court rules that they are legal.

Phoenix wanted to impose the new fees on Feb. 1.

But they are on hold after Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich found last month that they are "very likely'' unconstitutional.

The new $4 pickup and dropoff fees won't be imposed while the court considers whether they are legal.
