Arizona pays its bills, and it has paid the $2.1M remediation bill from the U.S. government for the shipping container border wall. The U.S. dismissed its lawsuit against Governor Ducey-then-Hobbs today, indicating the check went through.
The total cost to Arizona taxpayers for the stunt (the containers were said to be ineffectual) was more than $163M.
The federal government sued because it alleged Arizona had placed the containers on land along the border that it was not permitted to use.
