TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A showdown over SB 1070 could be coming to an end.

Gov. Jan Brewer signed the controversial immigration enforcement law in 2010, setting off a firestorm that eventually led to a supreme court case throwing out most of the law.

The justice department and Brewer have struck a deal on the remaining part, calling for the justice department to end a legal challenge to that remaining part that requires police to ask whether people are here legally during traffic stops and other encounters.

In exchange, Arizona would agree to not enforce another section of the law that the courts are holding up.

However, any deal will have to be approved by a judge.
