Granger: We Need to Reauthorize SCHIP Now
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-Fort Worth), Vice Chair of the Republican Conference, today issued the following statement following a press conference this morning with Ranking Member of the Energy and Commerce Committee Joe Barton (R-TX) and Ranking Member of the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health Nathan Deal (R-GA), announcing the Republican SCHIP extension proposal.
“We shouldn't be playing partisan politics with children's health. I support SCHIP. It's got to be reauthorized now. It expires in 11 days and without reauthorization 1.4 million children will lose their health care.”
