The Nation's Mayors Commend New Children's Health Legislation
Date:2/5/2009

WASHINGTON, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On behalf of the nation's mayors, U.S. Conference of Mayors President Miami Mayor Manny Diaz today commended President Barack Obama and the new Congress for taking a bold step towards providing healthcare for all children in the United States.

With the signing into law of the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009, President Obama extends government health benefits to an additional four million needy children over the next five years. The program, known as CHIP, currently covers more than 6 million children whose parents can't afford private insurance, but who also earn too much to qualify for Medicaid -- the federal health insurance program for the poor.

"Working families are struggling during these difficult economic times. Unfortunately, far too many working parents cannot afford health insurance and they are forced to live with the worry that their children are not receiving adequate medical care. This law takes major steps toward easing some of those worries by providing health care benefits for the children of working families," said Conference President Diaz.

"In these tough times, is important to assure families that the loss of a job doesn't mean the end of health benefits for their children," stated Tom Cochran, CEO and Executive Director of the organization. "And the Conference of Mayors remains committed to working with President Obama and Congress to ensure that all Americans have access to quality, affordable health care."
