Illinois governor appeals blocking of healthcare expansion

Chicago Tribune, April 24, 2008
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is appealing a judge's ruling that temporarily blocked the governor's expansion of a health program to subsidize 147,000 parents and caretakers. A state panel twice has refused to approve rules for the healthcare expansion, and Judge James Epstein issued a preliminary injunction that effectively halted the expansion. Blagojevich argues that 25,000 people will immediately lose health coverage because of the injunction.
