The law, HB 2779, allows authorities to revoke the business licenses of companies with multiple infractions for hiring illegal workers. It will take effect Jan. 1.

In the ruling Friday, the judge said plaintiffs had sued the incorrect people in Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano and State Attorney General Terry Goddard. The new lawsuit aims to fix the situation by naming the state's county attorneys as defendants instead.
Plaintiffs in the lawsuit include the Arizona Contractors Association Inc., Arizona Chamber of Commerce, and others.
