READ: AHCCCS Expansion Referendum Application Filed Today; The Heat Is On!

Only two days after signed into law, former State lawmakers Frank Antenori and  Ron Gould have filed their referendum on Arizona's Medicaid expansion.  The application and text of the referendum is reproduced below.

The United Republican Alliance of Principled Conservatives (URAPC) has until September 11, 2013 to filed at least 86,405 valid signatures in order to put the expansion to a statewide vote.  Governor Jan Brewer (R) signed the measure into law as part of the budget on Monday.

The URAPC has scheduled a kick-off rally for this Saturday morning outside of the state Capitol, after which they plan to hold mini-rallies in two of the legislative districts where Republican lawmakers voted for the expansion (District 18 in the Southeast Valley, and District 15 in the Northwest Valley).

The signature collection will be during the heat of an Arizona summer.
