Gov. Brewer to sign Medicaid expansion bill

Governor Jan Brewer will sign her Medicaid expansion plan into law Monday, during a ceremony at the capitol.

A handful of Republican lawmakers joined Democrats last week to approve the plan, as part of the state budget. It came during a special session the governor had called to deal with the issues.

Critics have said they plan to challenge the Medicaid expansion both in court, and at the ballot box.
