Health insurance rule taken out of Iowa bill

Des Moines Register, April 4, 2008
Iowa lawmakers are backing away from requiring that parents in the state enroll their children for health insurance, but still would like to set a goal that all children have insurance by 2011. The current version of healthcare legislation before the Iowa Legislature does set aside money to cover more children, and lawmakers would like to spend that money to increase state subsidies for coverage of children of moderate-income families under the Hawk-I and Medicaid programs.
