Iowa governor signs $25 million healthcare package for uninsured
Iowa Gov. Chet Culver has signed legislation that increases spending by $25 million over the next three years to extend healthcare to more than 50,000 Iowa children who currently lack coverage. The plan also sets a goal of ensuring universal coverage for all Iowans within five years, and the measure builds on a plan already on the books that covers children with working poor parents. Iowa officials estimate that about 53,000 children aren't covered.
