AG invites city attorneys to discuss civil unions

PHOENIX (AP) -

Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne is inviting city attorneys to an April 29 meeting to discuss legal questions surrounding city-approved civil unions.

Bisbee on April 2 approved an ordinance authorizing civil unions, but the City Council has since put the local law on hold pending a review and possible changes.

The council acted after Horne threatened the southern Arizona city with a lawsuit.

He said some aspects of Bisbee's ordinance conflict with state law and that residents could be misled about the legal meaning of a city-certified civil union.

Horne says he wants to guide city attorneys on what cities can legally do and not do.

A Tempe City Council member has said he will propose approval of civil unions in that Maricopa County community.
