(Phoenix, AZ) -- Governor Doug Ducey has a new a idea to keep health care coverage for 23,000 Arizona children. The governor says he may tap into the state's "rainy day fund" to temporarily pay for the Children's Health Insurance Program. Congress has yet to approve funding and federal dollars for the program ran out when the federal fiscal year ended on September 30th. The state has been picking up the slack, but will soon run out of the money its using to keep the program afloat. The state's rainy day fund has about $460 million, more than enough to fund the program for several months. Ducey would need legislative approval to shift that money.
