Hogan: Congress must reauthorize funding for Children’s Health Insurance Program
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is breaking with Republicans in Congress on yet another health-care issue — the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which will run out of funds in March, jeopardizing the health coverage of 140,000 Maryland children.
A spokeswoman for Hogan (R) said the administration has been working with the National Governors Association to urge Congress to take bipartisan action to ensure funding for the program.
“Needy kids should never be a political football,” Amelia Chasse said in a statement.
