GAO backs states on child healthcare
The Bush administration violated federal law when it restricted states' ability to provide health insurance to children of middle-income families, according to lawyers from the Government Accountability Office. As a result, the GAO says the administration's new policy is unenforceable, and the opinion strengthens the hand of at least 22 states that already provide such coverage or want to do so. At issue is the future of the State Children's Health Insurance Program.
