The bill faced intense lobbying and opposition from Apple, and now its fate looks grim.
Apple killed this bill in part by telling reps that its app store monopoly was critical to suppressing services like Parler. (It wasn't a real argument, the bill only hits payment systems, but it was a pro-monopoly argument.) https://t.co/nKyeTA2J45

So the App Store regulation law Arizona HB2005, which was on the agenda today in the state senate, just mysteriously vanished, and nobody is publicly saying why. It was passed over and never heard on the floor or voted on. And its fate is now uncertain. https://t.co/99fFqmS8BB
