PHOENIX -- The Arizona Supreme Court will hear an appeal of a ruling blocking a new law that raised campaign contribution limits, but won't allow it to go into effect pending its decision.

The court decided Tuesday to consider the appeal filed by lawyers for Senate President Andy Biggs and House Speaker Andy Tobin. It will consider whether a voter initiative that created the Arizona Citizens Clean Election Commission also set contribution limits.

The Commission argues that it did. It is urging the state's high court to rule that the appeals court got it right when it blocked the law passed by the Republican controlled Legislature.

The appeals court found in favor of the commission and blocked the law.

The Supreme Court will hear arguments on the case on Dec. 17.
