Cities sue the State (just not here)

While nobody in Minnesota chose to hit the briefs over the state budget, in Arizona they might not be so reluctant.  Their legislature (which also made comedy headlines recently by floating a proposal to sell and lease back the state capitol building) passed a freeze on local development impact fees.  Thing is, the freeze passed during a special session in which a state sales tax was the only item before the legislature.  So the cities have been handed a strong case – if they want to run the risk of having the Legislature take a hard look at shared revenue next session in return.  Sound familiar?  (Arizona Republic via Governing)
