Bush signs child healthcare extension into law

AP/Yahoo, December 31, 2007
President Bush signed legislation on that extends a popular children's health insurance program after having twice refusing attempts to expand it. The extension of the State Children's Health Insurance Program is expected to provide states with enough money to cover those enrolled through March 2009. Politically, the move was a victory for Bush, although Democrats say it will come back to hurt Republicans at the polls. Two times, Bush vetoed bills that would have broadened coverage to more children.
