Government health insurance for children is at the center of debates of Washington this week. A bill in the House and Senate would expand the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, or S-CHIP, by 35 billion dollars. President Bush has threatened to veto the legislation if it grows by more than 5 million dollars. Meanwhile, the whole program could end if not reauthorized by Sunday, when it’s set to expire. WV CHIP director Sharon Carte talks about what this means for children in West Virginia.
