KENNEDY ON CHILDREN'S HEALTH INSURANCE PROGRAM BEING SIGNED INTO LAW

Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, today released the following statement on the signing of the Children's Health Insurance Program into law:

"Our country has just made a clear commitment to guarantee quality, affordable health care to 4 million more American children. Four million more children will have a family doctor and enjoy the opportunities in life that come from a childhood lived in good health. Four million more families will no longer have to make impossible choices between paying for medical care of a sick child or meeting other urgent family needs. I commend President Obama for making this bill one of his earliest priorities and Congress for answering that call in a bipartisan way. It bodes well for our goals of enacting comprehensive health reform for all our people."
