State lawmakers urge Governor Ducey to act on COVID-19

Arizona continues to lead the nation in coronavirus cases per-capita. The surge is raising questions about the governor’s handling of the pandemic. It’s also led two state Democratic lawmakers, Representatives Charlene Fernandez and Kelli Butler, to send a letter to the governor and the state health director, urging them to act now.

The letter reads in part: “Arizona’s slow-footed and inadequate response to this crisis, rapidly increasing numbers of deaths, case growth and diminishing hospital capacity mean we must take immediate and dramatic action.” We spoke with Representatives Fernandez and Butler about what they want to see from the governor.
