According to reports from multiple media outlets, Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs has temporarily stepped down as governor, handing over the reins to Treasurer Kimberly Yee.
Yee made the announcement in an official statement shared on X.
“While I am pleased to step in this role, I will refrain from naming directors to the 13 agencies that currently have vacancies and will not call the Arizona Legislature into session to confirm them,” Yee said in an X post. “That being said, I do hope when the Governor returns to Arizona, she will promptly name qualified directors to these important state agencies.”
“I expect to see a quick resolution on this matter, so we can get the work done for Arizona taxpayers,” Yee added.
I have been notified that I will be serving as Acting Governor beginning later this evening until mid-morning tomorrow. Read my full statement below. pic.twitter.com/sSuiSCebk4
