PHOENIX — Republican lawmakers asked the state Court of Appeals this afternoon to give them a chance to prove that hundreds of millions of dollars being used to support an expanded Medicaid program were illegally enacted.
Gov. Jan Brewer: "The question for Arizonans today is not whether the law should exist. It does. The Supreme Court upheld it. The question is whether we will take decisive action in a way that most benefits Arizona's families, businesses and hospitals."
Gov. Jan Brewer led a lively "pep rally" for Medicaid expansion at Tucson Medical Center on Wednesday morning, drawing cheers, shouts of support and a standing ovation from about 250 local health-care executives, business leaders and other citizens.
The latest of several bills to expand Saguaro National Park has a new ally who supporters say should increase its chances of passage - the Tucson area's most prominent and politically potent developer.
