PHOENIX (AP) - A bill signed into law by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer could help revive a campaign finance case against Attorney General Tom Horne.

Wednesday's signing came a day after a Horne aide filed suit to have the state's campaign finance limits declared unconstitutionally low.

The election contains a provision allowing the secretary of state to send campaign finance complaints against the attorney general to the county attorney.

Horne and aide Kathleen Winn have been accused of illegally coordinating outside campaign spending for Horne during his 2010 campaign.

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery filed a civil action in October against him and Winn in October but a judge blocked it, saying Secretary of State Ken Bennett should have sent the case to Horne for review. Bennett still has the case.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio is pulling back the reins on his plans to quickly get rid of New York City's horse-drawn carriage industry, stung by a recent outpouring of support for the colorful coaches that have clip-clopped their way through Central Park for more than 150 years. A campaign pledge to take on the horses during his first week as mayor was eclipsed by other issues.
