Dr. Cara Christ and Gov. Doug Ducey on March 11, 2020.

On Friday, Gov. Doug Ducey appointed former Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System Director Tom Betlach to lead the Arizona Department of Economic Security —  for the next 75 days anyway.

The news came after the Yellow Sheet Report pointed out that Dr. Cara Christ was doing double duty during a pandemic as both the Arizona Department of Economic Security director and as director of the state Department of Health Services, a title she still holds. 

Yellow Sheet editor Hank Stephenson joined The Show to talk about the timing of the governor’s announcement.
