Ducey would also leave intact the state's controversial expansion of Medicaid, something the Legislature is suing to overturn.

He was joined in a show of general agreement by state Senate President Andy Biggs, R-Gilbert, and House Speaker David Gowan, R-Sierra Vista, as well as the chairmen of each chamber's appropriations committee.

Gowan echoed that sentiment.
