        PHOENIX (Wednesday January 20, 2011) - Attorney General Tom Horne today announced his office has filed an appearance in U.S. v. Arizona, the Obama administration’s federal court challenge to S.B. 1070. Attorney General Horne is appearing as counsel for the State of Arizona and will work with Governor Brewer’s counsel, who have been defending the Governor and the State in numerous federal court lawsuits challenging S.B. 1070. “I promised the people of Arizona that as the top law enforcement officer of this state, I would vigorously defend state law,” Horne said. “Today I am fulfilling my vow to defend S.B. 1070 in the courts against the attack by the Obama administration challenge to the law.” He added, “It is the responsibility of the federal government to secure the international border. Despite the claims of members of the Obama Administration that the border is ‘as secure as it’s ever been’, the evidence is to the contrary. There are far too many incidents of violence – including the recent murder of a Border Patrol Agent – drug and human smuggling, kidnappings and other criminal acts along the border that must be dealt with swiftly and aggressively. S.B. 1070 is an important tool in that effort.” Horne concluded, “I would urge the Obama Administration to drop its challenge of the law and allow Arizona to utilize every legal means at our disposal to combat crime along the border. Absent that action, I will use my office as Attorney General to defend S.B. 1070 all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, if necessary.”

          No nation can sustain itself unless it is able to secure its borders and thus protect its citizens. The story of those who immigrate to the United States through legal means is vital to our history. But the crisis of confronting those who break our laws to come to this country must be addressed more vigorously. Attorney General Tom Horne is committed to enforcing the Arizona law commonly known as S.B. 1070, which codifies existing federal immigration enforcement law into state statute. Enforcement of this and all immigration laws is an essential function of the Arizona Attorney General’s office.

              PHOENIX (Tuesday January 18, 2011) - Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne today announced that his office will join Governor Brewer and several other states in challenging the constitutionality of the Obama health care plan. The State of Arizona through Governor Brewer initially joined the suit last May. The suit was filed in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Florida and includes twenty states. Several additional states will file to join the suit today. Last October the judge rejected the U.S. Department of Justices arguments and allowed two critical claims raised by the States to move forward: (1) the individual mandate is an unconstitutional exercise of Congress' authority under the Commerce Clause; and (2) the costly expansion of Medicaid and the States inability to effectively opt-out of the program amount to an unconstitutional coercion of the States at the hands of Congress. The court currently has under advisement summary judgment motions filed by all parties. Horne stated: "The 10th amendment provides that all powers not expressly delegated to the federal government are reserved to the states or the people respectively. The constitution does not give the power to the federal government to force people to buy things they don't want to buy, such as health insurance. The requirement in the Obama bill that they do so is therefore unconstitutional. In addition, the bill requires states to make huge expenditures that they would not otherwise make, which is also unconstitutional. In the case of Arizona, this is a requirement to spend an additional $1 billion per year, approximately, which is money that Arizona does not have."

                    Phoenix (Wednesday January 26, 2011) - Attorney General Tom Horne today announced that he is recommending to the Arizona Department of Revenue that medical marijuana, made legal in a recent initiative, be taxed by the State. Horne stated, "I was opposed to the medical marijuana initiative during the 2010 election, but it was passed by the voters and the issue now presented is whether it should be taxed under existing law." He added, "Normally, there would be no tax on prescriptions. However, the legislation refers to doctors giving a 'written certification' rather than a prescription, an apparent effort, copied from other states, to protect doctors from discipline for giving prescriptions of substances prohibited under federal law. Since these are 'written certifications' rather than prescriptions, the sale of the substance can be taxed by the State, and we are recommending to the Department of Revenue that it tax the sales accordingly. We are informed by the Department of Revenue that they will take this advice, and tax the sales." The taxes are estimated to yield revenues to the State of Arizona in the approximate amount of $40 million per year. This number is projected, on a pro rata basis, to the Arizona population the statistics for Denver County, as reported by the Denver Post using the Phoenix sales tax rate.
