Lawmakers take campaign limits case to high court

PHOENIX - Top legislative leaders are appealing a court ruling that put Arizona's new higher limits on campaign contributions on hold.

Attorney Mike Liburdi told the Arizona Capitol Times that Senate President Andy Biggs and House Speaker Andy Tobin hope the Arizona Supreme Court will lift an injunction issued by the state Court of Appeals.

The Court of Appeals ruled that a 2013 state law's higher campaign contribution limits cannot be implemented because they conflict with limits set by a voter-approved law.

The ruling sent the case back to a trial judge for further proceedings, but Liburdi says appealing to the Supreme Court is the most efficient way to proceed.
