CCF Reviews Contents of SCHIP Reauthorization Bill Legislation Places SCHIP on Solid Path
Date:9/28/2007

WASHINGTON, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The compromise legislation on the reauthorization of the State Children's Health Insurance Program approved by Congress would set SCHIP on a solid path over the next 10 years, according to an analysis released today by the Georgetown University Center for Children and Families.

The vast majority (84 percent) of these children are from the lowest-income families that already are eligible for SCHIP or Medicaid.

"The SCHIP compromise bill has been misportrayed by the White House and other opponents of the legislation. Our report seeks to fill in the gaps in the streams of misinformation about the SCHIP bill," said Cindy Mann, CCF executive director.

President Bush is threatening to veto the bill, despite the progress the compromise SCHIP bill makes in covering chi
