New 2020 Arizona Laws

azstatecapitol

Each year while we kick off the new year with resolutions, several new Arizona laws also take effect. 

  • State minimum wage increase: Effective January 1, 2020, Arizona workers now earn a $12 per hour minimum wage, which is $1 per hour higher than 2019.  Those Arizona employees who receive tips, will now receive a $9 minimum wage, also a $1 per hour increase over 2019.   
  • Primary elections to be held sooner:  Primary elections, which have always been held on the fourth Tuesday of August, will be held earlier starting this year.  The primary vote will now be held on the first Tuesday of August instead.  
  • Mandatory testing for medical marijuana distributed by dispensaries: Starting in 2020, Arizona marijuana dispensaries are now required to have their products tested by a third-party lab for contaminants including pesticides and heavy metals.  Lab results may be viewed by caregivers and patients.
  • No more Opioid prescriptions written on paper: Beginning in 2020, opioid prescriptions can no longer be written on paper.  All must now be sent electronically, helping the state to prevent opioid prescription fraud, while also tracking potential abuse and usage rates.
  • Family caregiver reimbursement: Family caregivers meeting certain state requirements can now request up to a 50 percent reimbursement on home modifications and up to $1,000 on assistive care technology when assisting a family member with at least 1 activity of daily living. Reimbursement is granted on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Tobacco-buying age raised to 21: The U.S. President's signature Dec. 20 on a federal law prohibiting those younger than 21 from purchasing tobacco products is now in effect
