House set to pass kids' health bill

AP/Yahoo News, February 4, 2009

The government is poised to extend health coverage to 4 million more lower-income children, a first step in President Barack Obama's promise to shrink the ranks of the uninsured. The House was expected to approve the expansion of a children's health insurance program and deliver it to Obama for his quick signature. The bill has already passed the Senate. Over the next four years, up to 13 million children could be covered under the program.
