Horizon Roundup: Arizona courts uphold Medicaid expansion, Don Shooter accusations,

More from this show

The Supreme Court of Arizona rejected a lawsuit that challenged Medicaid expansion in the state on the premise of lowering taxes.

HB 2010 was signed into law by Jan Brewer in 2013 and expands eligibility for Medicaid in Arizona to low-income residents with an income up to 133 percent the federal poverty level. Had the lawsuit succeeded, more than 400,000 Arizona residents would have become ineligible for Medicaid.

A special counsel has been appointed by the state of Arizona to investigate allegations of sexual harassment against Rep. Don Shooter. Nine women have accused Shooter of harassment, including three fellow lawmakers.
