Wall Street Journal (subscription required), January 26, 2009
Congress is poised to pass legislation would renew and expand the popular State Children's Health Insurance Program to cover four million more children over a period of more than four years. The program, which now covers 6.7 million children, is set to expire March 31. The legislation passed the House by a 289-139 vote on Jan. 14, and the Senate Finance Committee by a 12-7 vote the next day. The Senate is considering it and will likely vote soon.
