Arizona Governor Jan Brewer will be in Yuma this afternoon (Thursday 24) to visit with constituents at the Arizona Western College campus.
She will deliver her State of the State address, the exact same speech she gave over a week ago at the Arizona State Capitol. The event begins at 1pm in the south wing of the Schoening Conference Center in Building Three-C.
She will follow that visit with a press conference at 3pm at the Yuma Regional Medical Center. The press conference from the medical center is expected to deal with Medicaid. Governor Brewer is proposing to add 300,000 low-income Arizona residents to Medicade through funding from hospitals through tax increases.
