Statement from Wheeler on AZ Supreme Court decision to review Medicaid lawsuit
STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Assistant House Minority Leader Bruce Wheeler, D-Tucson (District 10), released this statement after the Arizona Supreme Court announced today it will review the Court of Appeals’ decision to allow the Medicaid expansion lawsuit to go forward.
“The Arizona Supreme Court's decision today was the right one. Protecting the legislation that provided for the expansion of the Medicaid program is of the utmost importance. The majority of the Legislature supported Medicaid expansion because it is good for Arizona's economy, hospitals and residents. It is already helping people across our state get quality, affordable care. I am confident that the court will ultimately affirm the Superior Court ruling and put this issue to rest.”
