Missouri House GOP rejects children's healthcare expansion

Kansas City Star, February 26, 2009

Missouri House Republicans have shot down an attempt by Democratic lawmakers and the governor to reduce healthcare premiums and increase access for thousands of children. Gov.

Republicans on the House Budget Committee, however, did not include the recommendation in the budget bill.
