  • HB2212 Required Language for Pima County Permit, License, and Application Forms


    County License Application Forms A.R.S. § 11-1604; RFCD License Application Forms A.R.S. § 48-3644 (Prohibited acts by county and employees, or district and employees; enforcement; notice) provides:
    1. A county or district shall not base a licensing decision in whole or in part on a licensing requirement or condition that is not specifically authorized by statute, rule, ordinance or delegation agreement, in addition for a district, regulation or executive order. A general grant of authority does not constitute a basis for imposing a licensing requirement or condition unless the authority specifically authorizes the requirement or condition.
    2. Unless specifically authorized, a county or district shall avoid duplication of other laws that do not enhance regulatory clarity and shall avoid dual permitting to the maximum extent practicable.
    3. This section does not prohibit county or district flexibility to issue licenses or adopt ordinances or codes.
    4. A county or district shall not request or initiate discussions with a person about waiving that person's rights.
    5. This section may be enforced in a private civil action and relief may be awarded against a county or district. The court may award reasonable attorney fees, damages and all fees associated with the license application to a party that prevails in an action against a county or district for a violation of this section.
    6. A county or district employee may not intentionally or knowingly violate this section. A violation of this section is cause for disciplinary action or dismissal pursuant to the county's or district's adopted personnel policy.
    7. This section does not abrogate the immunity provided by section 12-820.01 or 12-820.02.
