Governor Rendell Calls on Senate to Return to Harrisburg, Work with House to Address Critical, Unresolved Health Care Issues
Date:11/10/2008

ctors nearly $1 billion. The Governor said he would like to continue this program -- under the ABC proposal, for 10 years -- but he will only approve continuation of abatements with the passage of a program that expands health insurance to the uninsured.

The Governor also expressed willingness to continue funding for the Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council (PHC4) as part of an overall health care package. PHC4 collects quality and cost data from hospitals and is scheduled to end on Nov. 30.

"It seems clear to me that last Tuesday's election was a mandate that the people expect their elected officials to work together and solve problems. Two Pennsylvanians die each day from the lack of health insurance. That is unacceptable. Coverage for the uninsured is one problem that we must address while we wait for the federal government to tackle this issue for the entire country.

"We can do this. We must do this. And we must do this now. I ask the Senate to put aside partisan differences, return to Harrisburg and join their colleagues in the House to help the growing number of uninsured."

The Rendell administration is committed to creating a first-rate public education system, protecting our most vulnerable citizens and continuing economic investment to support our communities and businesses.
