>Threats to the contrary, the Houston Chronicle has picked up on the fact that Texas has enough Federal funds to continue CHIP in our State for “at least a year,” even with the expansions and improvements passed by the 80th Legislature earlier this year.
And in spite of the President’s veto.
This news was also posted at the Texas Health and Human Services CHIP website earlier this week:
The state is closely watching federal action on CHIP, but no immediate changes are expected in the Texas program. The state has sufficient federal funding available to maintain the Texas program, including the recent changes authorized by the 80th Texas Legislature.
