Tom Horne's Cash for Colorado City Policing Set to Run Out, So Taxpayers Might Foot the Bill

The "Marshal's Office" for the FLDS towns of Colorado City and Hildale on the Utah/Arizona border could become the reason for a new $420,000 burden on taxpayers.

It turns out that Attorney General Tom Horne won't continue to use his office's funds to pay the Mohave County Sheriff's Office for extra patrols in the area, after a bill that attempts to deal with the situation in Colorado City was all but killed in the state Legislature.
