  • House GOP Leaders Announce Children's Health Insurance Vote Roll Call by Sandhya Raman — Arguments erupted on the House floor Thursday between Republican and Democratic leaders over the prospect of a vote next week on a GOP-only bill to renew funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program, or CHIP. House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., announced the bill would be debated next week — a plan opposed by Minority Whip Steny H. Hoyer, D-Md. Democrats have pushed to delay the House bill until an agreement is reached on a bipartisan solution to pay for it. "CHIP and community health centers, as the majority leader pointed out, have always been a bipartisan priority. Unfortunately, this bill did not come out of the committee as a bipartisan bill," said Hoyer. "Negotiations were not fruitful."

  • States Risk Exhaustion of Children's Coverage Funds CQ by Sandhya Raman — Inaction on passing legislation to extend funding for CHIP is causing further uncertainty for states and families, according to a new report. The findings from the Georgetown Center for Children and Families underscore previous concerns from advocates that the delay in renewing CHIP funding will negatively impact states. The report said five states — Arizona, California, Minnesota, Ohio and Oregon — as well as the District of Columbia are projected to exhaust funds before or shortly after December.
