Arizona GOP lawmakers take aim at feds once again

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) -

A conservative Arizona lawmaker wants to ban state agencies from helping the National Security Agency collect phone and internet "metadata."

Another wants to require federal agents to register with the local sheriff, show a warrant and force the government to hand over any fines they collect to the state and county. A third is pushing a bill allowing the state or a rancher to shoot any Mexican gray wolves they believe have killed livestock regardless of any federal law protecting the endangered species.

All three proposals show the Republican-controlled Arizona Legislature's penchant for wagging its finger at the federal government is far from satisfied. And Democratic lawmakers and a constitutional law professor say they all push up against the supremacy of the federal government.
