State of New Jersey Sues President Bush over Childrens' Health

Governor Jon S. Corzine today filed a lawsuit on behalf of the people of the state of New Jersey challenging the letter issued by the Bush Administration limiting eligibility for the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). The lawsuit accuses the Bush Administration of circumventing the public rule-making process by fundamentally and arbitrarily changing the program via letter, which would have the effect of denying health insurance coverage for over 10,000 New Jersey children.

"Administration's Course Of Action Will Harm Our Children's Health"

Eliot Spitzer and New York State join New Jersey among the 7 states in the suit.
