AZ legislature should vote Thurs to help benefits
PHOENIX -- For months I and other legislative Democrats have been pushing to help people out of this economic recession by ensuring Arizona makes full and wise use of all our federal stimulus funding.
Finally, the legislature is set to act.
HB2631 and 2632 would fix eligibility problems with AHCCCS healthcare, and extend unemployment benefits to those who've lost their jobs.
I plan to vote 'yes' on the House floor Thursday, and I urge other members to join me.
