SB1134 KIDSCARE will be heard on Wednesday in front of the
Senate House and Human Services Committee.
This bill seeks to remove the "freeze trigger" on KidsCare in Arizona. If the state does not comply to meet the 10% match, families will lose access to KidsCare.
SB1134 appropriates $1,586,900 from the general fund and $15,141,500 from the CHIP Fund in FY2019-20 to AHCCCS to administer and provide services under CHIP.
We have attached a great

SB 1011 "211" Appropriation, is posted for the Senate House and Human Service Committee on Wednesday. The Committee will only take testimony and not vote. If you have not already done so, please contact member of the committee below NOW!
SB1011 would expand Arizona's 2-1-1 program. 2-1-1 information line transforms lives by linking individuals and families to vital community resources throughout Arizona, yet it currently receives zero dollars in state funding. We are asking for state appropriated funding for 2-1-1 which will provide a 24/7 safety net for Arizonans, reducing the need for high cost ER, housing and crisis services across the state.
