    Petition to Modify Rule 17.1 of the Arizona Rules of Criminal Procedure

    Would add language from former Rule 8(b), Arizona Rules of Traffic and Boating Cases, which was unintentionally abrogated effective January 1, 2016; would reinstate a process by which out-of state defendants who have been charged with criminal traffic misdemeanors or petty offenses may easily resolve their cases
