ALEXANDER STATEMENT ON REAUTHORIZATION STATE CHILDREN’S HEALTH INSURANCE PROGRAM

Posted on August 3, 2007

“The State Children’s Health Insurance Program has been an excellent program for helping children, and this legislation provides Tennessee with the resources and incentives needed to make sure Tennessee’s neediest children receive medical care. It will ensure the continuation of the state’s valuable CoverKids program, which provides dependable health coverage for our State’s low-income, uninsured children. Congress should now focus on the goal of providing every American with access to affordable health insurance by adjusting the tax code so that every American can afford to buy health coverage.”
