J.C. Scott: Is Legislature closer to approving Medicaid expansion?

On Wednesday's edition of the John C. Scott Show:

We started our show with Emil Franzi of the Southern Arizona News Examiner, talking about Arizona's gun buyback prohibition, Medicaid, Tucson's economic growth and Pima County taxes.

27 min. into the show, we were joined by Ward 6 Tucson City Councilman Steve Kozachik, who gave his take on city employee pay raises, gun legislation, Tucson Water, graffiti problems, and sex trafficking. 

60 min.: We interviewed LD9 Democratic state Sen. Steve Farley about new laws signed by Gov. Brewer and those that still await her signature. Other subjects included the gun buyback legislation, education, Medicaid expansion and a GOP measure that would make precious metals legal tender.

77 min.: We were joined by financial advisor Shelly Fishman who gave us a stock market update and also talked about payroll taxes on small business.

92 min.: We concluded with an interview of LD9 Republican state Rep. Ethan Orr., who talked about education, Medicaid expansion, mental health, Pima Community Collage funding and the gun buyback law.

The John C. Scott Show airs Monday-Friday, 3-5 p.m. on KVOI 1030 AM. The opinions expressed on the John C. Scott Show are those of the host and guests. TucsonSentinel.com posts show archives as a public service, because of the number of local newsmakers interviewed on the program.
