Illinois high court removes block on FamilyCare funds
Chicago Tribune, November 14, 2008
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's administration will start paying healthcare providers again after the state Supreme Court put a temporary hold on a judge's order to shut down an expansion of the state's FamilyCare program. The decision marked the latest twist in Blagojevich's attempt to expand state-subsidized healthcare without lawmakers' approval. The governor's unauthorized expansion allowed families of four making up to $83,000 a year to get coverage, but his administration was then sued by two prominent businessmen and a lawyer to stop it.
