Tonight on Arizona Public Media's AZ Illustrated Politics: Senate President Andy Biggs travels from Phoenix to join a panel that includes state Sen. Linda Lopez and former lawmakers Paula Aboud and Jonathan Paton. On the agenda: Gov. Jan Brewer's call for an expansion of AHCCCS (aka Arizona's version of Medicaid) to 133 percent of the federal poverty level; the latest firearms legislation at the Capitol; and this week's federal court ruling tossing a state law that would have prohibited any healthcare funding from going to Planned Parenthood or other healthcare providers that offer abortion services.
The show airs at 6:30 p.m. on Channel 6 and repeats at 12:30 a.m. We'll have it posted here at The Range as soon as we can.
