Health care reform could cost AZ $7 billion

• East Valley Tribune

Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Phoenix, said the scheduled elimination of Kids Care on June 15 would put the state at odds with a provision in the federal measure that requires states to maintain their programs as they are today when President Barack Obama signs the bill.
