Pelosi: SCHIP Bill a Giant Step for America's Children

WASHINGTON, Sept. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi delivered remarks this morning at the Children's Health Insurance rally attended by labor union leaders, members of Congress, and hundreds of children and seniors.

''Under our legislation, 6 million children currently enrolled in SCHIP would receive better benefits, including dental care and mental health services. And through improvements to the program, an additional 5 million children would be enrolled.

''As many of you know, when I took the gavel as first woman Speaker of the House, I took it surrounded by children. This is a comfortable environment for me. It reminds us constantly of our responsibility to the future. But when I took that gavel, I said, 'I take this gavel on behalf of all of America's children.' Ruby spoke so beautifully about the fact that
