Illinois governor halts enrollment in expanded health program
AP/Chicago Tribune, May 7, 2008
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has agreed to a court's instructions and stopped enrolling people in a healthcare program he launched without legislative approval. The 30,000 people enrolled in the expanded program will continue to be covered, however. Blagojevich tried to pass a major healthcare expansion in 2007, but lawmakers refused to go along. Blagojevich expanded his FamilyCare program anyway to cover people with higher incomes, which led to the lawsuit.
