GOP legislators sue Gov. Brewer over Medicaid expansion

    Maricopa Monitor: Outvoted by their colleagues, 36 Republican legislators are now asking a judge to invalidate the Medicaid expansion plan that they were unable to block politically.

Jan Brewer contends the levy she pushed lawmakers to approve on hospitals to fund the expansion is a tax or, at the very least, a new state fee or assessment. And that, challengers say, means it needed a two-thirds vote, something it did not get.
