Former Tucson lawmaker Terri Proud, who was just hired by the state Veterans' Services Department, was fired Wednesday in the wake of her statement in a news story that menstrual cycles might be too problematic for women to be in combat. The department director who hired her has resigned.
The director of The Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services has resigned. And Terri Proud, who he just hired as administrative assistant, was fired in the wake of her statement in a news story that menstrual cycles might be too problematic for women to be in combat.

Twenty-three training programs for disabled Arizonans were spared the possibility having to send hundred of clients home on Monday after the state issued them last-minute contract extensions late Friday.
