BISBEE, AZ - A spokeswoman says Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne won't sue Bisbee to try to block final approval of the southern Arizona city's revised ordinance on civil unions.
Horne spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham says Horne "is fine" with the revised ordinance, believing it addresses his concerns.
The Bisbee City Council voted 5-2 Tuesday night to formally propose a scaled-back version of the ordinance.
That sets the stage for a June 4 vote by the council on whether to approve the measure.
Bisbee officials rewrote an earlier version after Horne threatened to sue over provisions that Horne said were in conflict with state law or went beyond the city's authority.
