Ohio Delegation Members Urge Colleagues to Vote for Override of SCHIP Veto
Date:10/16/2007

WASHINGTON, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With both the Senate and House expected to vote this week on over-riding the presidential veto of the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) legislation, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Representatives Stephanie Tubbs Jones, Tim Ryan and Betty Sutton came together on a news conference call to urge their colleagues to vote in favor of children's health care.

The SCHIP legislation would provide $35 billion in additional funding for the program over the next five years.

The additional funds would not only maintain coverage for the children already enrolled in the program, but would reach millions more children nationwide who are eligible for the program but are not yet enrolled.

"This helps millions of children to receive preventive care in the doctor's office instead of acute care in the emergency room. Before he vetoed the legislation, I wish the president met the children and parents I talked to in Ohio. Republicans and Democrats must unite around this goal, as we did in 1996 when the program was created, and override the veto."

"This week, we will have an opportunity to expand one of the most effective government programs implemented in the last decade, the State Children's Health Insurance Program, by overriding President Bush's veto," said Rep. Tubbs Jones. "We must expand this program if our society truly wishes to bridge the divide between the 'Haves' and the 'Have-Nots' and ensure that our children receive the much needed healthcare they deserve."

"It is morally unacceptable for the President to have vetoed legislation that would cover 10 million children with healthcare," said Rep. Ryan. "It is time that our colleagues who are on the fence to decide once and for all
