Washington governor's budget to target kids' health plan

AP/Seattle Post-Intelligencer, December 18, 2008

Plans to increase health coverage for kids will be among the spending cuts in Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire's budget, according to a senior state official speaking on the condition of anonymity. The state official said that Gregoire would suspend plans to increase child health coverage to 300% of the federal poverty level, which is about $64,000 a year for a family of four.
