The nation's toughest immigration law has been in effect for three months. But after the federal courts prevented key portions from going into effect, it has failed to live up to both opponents' worst fears and supporters' greatest hopes.

Immigrant-rights groups and major Arizona law-enforcement agencies say they've heard of no arrests made or citations issued using the statutes created under Senate Bill 1070, and no Arizona resident has taken advantage of the portion of the law that allows them to sue an official or agency that is not enforcing federal immigration law to the fullest extent.

Sharp tuition increases for new students have pushed the three state universities above the national average for in-state tuition and fees for the first time in at least 25 years, according to a survey being released today.

Arizona, in annual surveys by the non-profit College Board, has traditionally been below the national average for tuition and mandatory fees for public, four-year institutions, sometimes by as much as $1,500. But over the past two years, steep tuition hikes designed to make up for losses in state funding have pushed the state's universities closer to the national mark.

Arizona's requirement that people show proof of citizenship to register to vote was struck down by a federal appeals court, which said it conflicts with the National Voter Registration Act.

The U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco today invalidated parts of Arizonas Proposition 200, a 2004 voter- approved initiative on registration for state and federal elections. The court didnt disturb a requirement that voters show identification at the polls.

Tom TingleAbout 640,000 Arizona residents enrolled in the state's version of Medicaid will no longer receive coverage for some preventive health care because of cuts to the agency's budget.

The cuts, which went into effect Oct. 1, mean men and women may have to pay out of pocket for "well visits," such as physical check-ups or comprehensive well-woman exams.

The Arizona Department of Transportation is seeking public comment on a potential new route in Pinal County that would link Interstate 10 and US 60.

Held today in Florence will be the first of three public meetings on a North-South Corridor Study to identify and evaluate possible transportation routes.

Past studies, the last completed in 2006, indicated a need for the highway.

State officials are thinking about potential new transportation links in northern Pinal County in south-central Arizona.

Attorney General Terry Goddard announced today he is sending letters to more than 60 mortgage loan servicing companies in Arizona, warning them about possible violations of state law in document signature practices involved in home foreclosures and demanding a thorough review of those procedures to make sure they comply with the law.

Mortgage relief is on the way for Arizona homeowners who took out "pick-a-pay" loans from two companies that since have been acquired by Wells Fargo.

Wells Fargo has agreed to provide more than $150 million in mortgage relief to homeowners who obtained the adjustable-rate loans through Wachovia Corp. and Golden West Corp. The move will come about as part of a settlement announced by Attorney General Terry Goddard, who alleged that the loans were marketed deceptively.
