Public Hearing on KidsCare enrollment cap

On Tuesday, December 29, AHCCCS will be holding a public hearing on the enrollment cap that Governor Brewer has ordered for KidsCare.

From the public notice for the hearing:
KidsCare Program Enrollment Cap

Due to Arizona’s fiscal crisis, AHCCCS can no longer ensure the availability of adequate funding to support further growth in the KidsCare program. As a result, AHCCCS will implement an enrollment cap for the KidsCare program effective January 1, 2010.

AHCCCS will be holding a public hearing regarding the KidsCare Enrollment Cap, where written and oral comments can be submitted. Below is information on the location and time of the public hearing:

Not exactly a Christmas-y post, but whatthehell - lumps of coal are a part of Christmas lore as much as tinsel and trees and such.

And lumps of coal are exactly what Brewer, Burns, and Adams deserve this year...
