Shea-Porter Statement on State Children's Health Insurance Program

“After three years, numerous votes, and two presidential vetoes, our nation’s uninsured children will finally get health insurance. I have been honored to be involved in this fight and I am very pleased that President Obama has signed the State Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act into law. This legislation will provide health insurance to more than 11 million children, including twenty thousand children in New Hampshire. This landmark bill is a victory for children and families everywhere.”
