Illinois governor rewriting bill to improve healthcare access
AP/Chicago Tribune, August 7, 2008
Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is using his amendatory veto to give parents the option of keeping their children on their health plan until they turn 26. The bill revisions Blagojevich announced also would give parents the option of keeping children on their health plan until they are 30 if those children are veterans. The governor says more than 300,000 Illinoisans between the ages of 19 and 25 are uninsured, and that the changes he's proposing will enable them to get the coverage they need to have access to regular checkups and preventive care.
