Common-Sense Governance Reform for Our Arizona State Hospital Will Have to Wait Yet Another Year

A key government accountability bill (SB1688) that would have fixed the governance flaw at our Arizona State Hospital failed again this year.

You’re probably tired of reading pieces by me about why this bill was so important so I’ll spare you the details of why ADHS shouldn’t be both running and ‘regulating’ our state hospital.

In the end, opposition from the governor’s office led Senate Democrats to vote against the bill – ending its chances again. It was approved for reconsideration after its failure on the floor the first time but was never put back on the board.

We won’t (or at least I won’t) give up. I’ll be back year after year after year until we fix this.
