PHOENIX -- Arizona Senate bills requiring federal agents to register with a local sheriff and barring federal officials from making arrests without the sheriff's permission have stalled over constitutional concerns.

Senate President Andy Biggs held the bills in the Rules Committee Monday after the committee's attorney said they likely ran afoul of the supremacy clause of the U.S. Constitution.

Senate Bill 1093 by Republican Sen. Chester Crandell of Heber required federal agents to register with the local sheriff, show a warrant and hand over any fines they collect.

Senate Bill 1290 by Sen. Judy Burges of Sun City West said the sheriff is the senior law enforcement officer in a county and allowed that person to refuse to give federal agents permission to makes arrests or searches.
