Editorial: Children in need

Roughly 60,000 low-income children in the state await a decision by Congress on the Children’s Health Insurance Program.

As lawmakers prepare to return to Washington D.C., it’s important that they take the steps to continue a worthwhile program.

The Associated Press reported that the State of Iowa is preparing to notify families in early February that federal money could run out soon for the health insurance program. Officials are hopeful congressional action early in the new year will make such contingency plans unnecessary.
