Hawaii ending universal child healthcare

AP/Yahoo News, October 17, 2008

Hawaii is dropping the only state universal child healthcare program in the country just seven months after it launched. Gov. Linda Lingle's administration cited budget shortfalls and other available healthcare options for eliminating funding. A state official said families were dropping private coverage so their children would be eligible for the subsidized plan.
