AARP Maryland Calls on President Bush Not to Veto SCHIP
Date:9/26/2007

BALTIMORE, Sept. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AARP in Maryland, 853,000 members strong, urges President Bush to sign a bill to reauthorize and strengthen the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) and encourages Governor O'Malley, Maryland's Congressional delegation, and voters throughout the state to call the President and tell him not to veto the SCHIP expansion.

"More than 100,000 children in Maryland rely on SCHIP for the health care they need," said AARP Maryland State Director Joseph DeMattos, Jr. "SCHIP is a smart and affordable way to reduce the number of uninsured people in this country, starting with our most vulnerable kids. And paying for children's health coverage with a tobacco tax could help improve the health of the entire country by reducing smoking at all ages.

The House of Representatives took an important step with a bipartisan vote to reauthorize and strengthen SCHIP on Tuesday.

"We cannot turn our backs on the children of Maryland," DeMattos said. "The Senate and the President must join with the House to ensure the fundamental health care needs of our children -- the future of our state and country -- are met."
