About 75 people turned out April 11 at the State Capitol to urge Gov. Doug Ducey to lift a state freeze on Children’s Health Insurance Program spending, since a bill to lift the freeze has been blocked by state Sen. Andy Biggs, president of the Arizona Senate.

“Arizona is the only state that has a freeze on KidsCare,” said Rabbi John Linder of Temple Solel, referring to the health insurance program by its popular name. Linder was one of eight rabbis from the Valley and Tucson who signed an open letter from the Arizona Interfaith Network to the governor. In all, 81 clerics signed the letter.
