Revised SCHIP Passes House but not by a Veto-Proof Majority

ThinkProgress reports on the House passage of a revised SCHIP bill.  It reports on yesterday's vote:

The House just voted 265-142 to approve revised SCHIP expansion legislation, but fell short of the two-thirds needed to uphold a veto by President Bush. Twenty-seven members didn’t vote. The bill would “add $35 billionto the State Children’s Health Insurance Program” and “addressed critics’ concerns about participation by adults, illegal immigrants and families able to afford health insurance.”

NPR's Morning Edition has further commentary.
