Attorney General Brnovich Announces Phoenix’s Rideshare Fees Will Not Go Into Effect on February 1

PHOENIX – Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced today that the City of Phoenix agreed its new Sky Harbor rideshare ordinance will not go into effect until the Arizona Supreme Court has a chance to rule on the AG's Petition for Special Action challenging the constitutionality of the Ordinance. Today's stipulation with the Supreme Court will prevent the Ordinance from going into effect on February 1st.

“The City of Phoenix has backed down from enforcing their unconstitutional rideshare fees for now,” said Attorney General Mark Brnovich. “This is a win for consumers but this fight continues at the Arizona Supreme Court. I will always defend the constitutional rights of Arizona voters.”

This agreement comes less than 24 hours after the Attorney General filed a request for stay with the Supreme Court to prevent the Ordinance from going into effect on February 1, 2020. Additionally on Tuesday, the AGO filed a special action with the Arizona Supreme Court to declare the City of Phoenix’s rideshare fees unconstitutional.
