Arizona voters may be asked a second time this year to raise their own taxes, this time to keep the state from reducing the number of people who get free health care. The Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association is working with consultants on an initiative it hopes will make it to the ballot in November. It would raise money to stop the state from cutting more than 310,000 people from the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System, the state’s Medicaid program.
