DALLAS - Pima County Supervisors in Tucson, Ariz., today will consider delaying a $1.2 billion bond election planned for November as the county and the city struggle to complete a joint courthouse project funded by a 2004 bond issue.

County administrator Chuck Huckelberry has proposed delaying the upcoming bond election by at least a year, citing a deteriorating economy that could affect the county's ability to pay down its debt. The Pima County Bond Advisory Committee, which drew up the proposals for the bond issue, voted June 11 to recommend a delay amid growing fears that the measures would be rejected.
