President Trump Signs Bi-Partisan Bill To Make Sure Federal District Court Cases Can Now Be Heard In Flagstaff

A bipartisan bill, backed by all Arizona members of Congress, that would expand access to federal courts for people in Flagstaff and Yuma, has been signed into law by President Trump. Congressman Tom O’Halleran introduced the bill in the House, which passed back in July. A companion bill was introduced in the Senate by Senator Martha McSally and co-sponsored by Senator Kyrsten Sinema. The bill would amend Title 28 of the U.S. Code to add Flagstaff and Yuma to the list of Arizona cities authorized to hold federal district court proceedings. Until today, those proceedings could only be held in Globe, Phoenix, Prescott and Tucson. That means people in Flagstaff would have to travel to Prescott or Phoenix. Now, proceedings will be held in Flagstaff.
