STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Rep. Randall Friese, D-Tucson (District 9), who is also a trauma surgeon, released the following statement regarding the Arizona Supreme Court’s decision on Medicaid:


“Today the Arizona Supreme Court upheld what we have known all along -- that Medicaid expansion is a legal, affordable and effective means to provide healthcare for hundreds of thousands of low-income working Arizonans. The bi-partisan effort to expand Medicaid in Arizona has saved lives and strengthened our economy. Medicaid is still under attack in Washington, D.C., but our members will continue to defend it with all we have because it’s smart policy that works for Arizona families.”
