Governor Ivey Comments on Reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program
MONTGOMERY – Today, both houses of the United States Congress passed a Continuing Resolution to fund the federal government. Alabama Governor Kay Ivey released the following statement regarding Congress’ reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program.
“I am thankful that Congress has finally passed a continuing resolution to fund the federal government, including a six-year reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). I have continually supported CHIP funding because approximately 159,000 Alabama children depend on it for their health insurance. Caring for our children and meeting their healthcare needs is a bipartisan issue; I appreciate Alabama’s Congressional Delegation for playing a key role in ensuring continued funding for CHIP.”
