Mayors Express Frustration Over President Bush's Veto to SCHIP Legislation
Date:10/3/2007

Call for a Real Commitment to America's Children

WASHINGTON, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The United States Conference of Mayors, led by President and Trenton, NJ Mayor Douglas H.

The Conference is also calling on Congress to override the veto.

"By all accounts, this measure would cover millions of children who currently fall through the cracks because either they can't afford insurance or their income is too high to qualify for Medicare. With his veto, President Bush sends th
