This program is particularly important in my district where, as the Georgetown University Center for Children and Families estimates, nearly 42% of children have healthcare coverage because of CHIP. “While I strongly support the CHIP program, I cannot support a bill that would cut over $6 billion from the Prevention and Public Health Fund.
