Childrens' Health Insurance Money To Run Out In March

From the New York Times:  A new federal study issued by the Congressional Research Service reports that 21 states will run out of money for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) in the coming year, and of those states, 9 will exhaust their funding by March, including Alaska, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Rhode Island. Bipartisan talks continue on the bill vetoed by President Bush earlier this month (prior posts here and here):

Their goal is to revise a bill, vetoed by President Bush, to pick up Republican support in the House and gain enough votes to override another veto threatened by the president.
