SCHIP Veto Override Fails
The U.S. House of Representatives fell 13 votes short in their attempt to override President Bush's veto of SCHIP. North Carolina Representatives voted along party lines with all the Democrats voting for the override and all the Republicans voting against it. The Arc of North Carolina will continue to monitor this legislation and we will also monitor the CMS rule changes that would have been delayed by six months if the override had been successful.
