SCHIP Update: U.S. Represenatives Attempt Override of President's Veto
Congress is back from its winter recess and first up is SCHIP. Tomorrow the U.S. House of Representatives will vote to override President Bush’s veto of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). This will be the second attempt to override the veto. Prior to Congress's winter recess it looked like any attempt override the veto would not occur. Congress did pass an SCHIP extension of funding when they passed the Medicaid/Medicare bill prior to break. We will be monitoring this vote.
