Horizon Roundup: KidsCare funding, County Recorder apoligizes for online behavior
Nov. 3, 2017
Gov. Doug Ducey will find gap funding to pay for KidsCare, a program that provides healthcare to children from lower-income families.
KidsCare is currently funded on a federal level, but Congress failed to renew funding for the program, leaving the state with two options: foot the bill or leave 23,000 without health insurance.
County Recorder Adrian Fontes has apologized for inflammatory behavior online. Nathan Schneider, a Democrat running for Arizona Legislature, publicly criticized the mail-in ballot he received from the County Recorder’s office in a Facebook post. Fontes responded, and the two argued back and forth in the comments section of Schneider’s post. Fontes has since apologized for what he described as, “inappropriate and rude comments.”
