Bishop Reacts to SCHIP Veto Override Vote

October 18, 2007
Press Release
Well, now that the games are over, we need to reauthorize the SCHIP program with a bill that's properly funded and targets help to poor kids first. We could learn a lot along those lines by watching how the State of Utah runs this program. Hopefully Washington will learn the same lessons. The House completely wasted the last two weeks, playing politics while we all waited for an outcome everyone knew was inevitable and wouldn't lead to anything good. Hopefully now we can move on and reach a legitimate compromise.
