Both political parties say that funding the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is a priority; however, the two parties have not reached any sort of agreement on how to actually pay for the costly program.
“Congressman Robert Aderholt called me early this morning and they are working to get the CHIPS funding passed,” state Rep. Mack Butler, R-Rainbow City, said on social media. “They have added it to the government funding bill which should be up for a vote today. Basically the issue is the democrats keep trying to add items to the bill as they know this bill will pass. He said he would update me ASAP on this very serious issue. Mack.”
