Legislative Session: What Can We Expect / by AzHHA

Greg Ensell, Vice President of Government Relations

On Monday, Governor Ducey was sworn in for another four years as Arizona Governor and welcomed two Democrats into the ranks of statewide officeholders with a message of bipartisanship. The 2019 session will set the stage, especially among urgent issues such as water and education funding.

This year the state has the largest projected budget surplus in a decade, which Governor attributes to economic growth and economic development efforts. One of the key items that AzHHA will be keeping a watchful eye on this session will be the state budget as well as telemedicine parity.

Starting on January 18th AzHHA will be holding its weekly legislative update calls to available AzHHA members. If you would like to participate in the weekly legislative update calls, please contact Greg Ensell.
