Fann Warns Arizona Legislators Against Opposing Ducey's Stay-At-Home Order

On Thursday, Arizona legislators were warned by Senate President Karen Fann that they should think twice before challenging Governor Doug Ducey’s stay-at-home executive order extension. Fann advised legislators that any resolution to end the executive order would cost the state millions in federal dollars.

Before everyone weighs in on this email, I would like to relay some information we found out yesterday from legal counsel. If this resolution passes, the Governor’s emergency declaration will end. That means Arizona will get to keep the Covid money we have received to date but will NOT be entitled to all the millions of FEMA or DEMA funds. In addition, all of the emergency declarations the governor has passed over the past few weeks will end immediately…. these include things like state income tax deferral to July 15th; protections for our constituents from evictions, etc., etc……etc.

At the same time, in an appearance on KFYI’s James T. Harris show, House Majority Leader Warren Petersen said he was encouraging lawmakers to join him in passing just such a resolution:

“I think it’s time to do that,” said Petersen of passing a resolution, “I’ve shared that with my colleagues, and I’m counting votes and I think we have a majority of Republicans who are willing to do that.”

“You’re not going to get any of the Democrats,” said Petersen referring to a resolution, “that’ just not going to happen because they benefit from a cratering economy, because I guess that is a wonderful thing for them.”
