PHOENIX — Attorney General Mark Brnovich is going to rule whether cities can impose their own prohibitions on “dark money” in local campaigns.

The move comes because Sen. Vince Leach, R-Tucson, has invoked a state law that requires the attorney general to investigate allegations by lawmakers of violations of state laws by local officials. In this case, Leach contends that Tempe residents acted illegally when they approved a 2017 ordinance requiring public disclosure of the true source of campaign donations.
