Gov. Sonny Perdue announced Monday that he will testify before the U.S.
Senate Finance Committee about the State Children's Health Insurance
Program on Thursday, Feb. 1, in Washington, D.C. Perdue will represent
the 17 states that comprise the Southern Governor's Association, which
he chaired in 2005.
"The State Children's Health Insurance Program, known as PeachCare in
Georgia, is an important partnership between the federal government and
state government that insures over 270,000 children in Georgia alone,"
Perdue said in a press release issued Monday by the governor's office.
"We stand ready to meet our commitment, and I will use this opportunity
to ask Congress to continue to fund this important program."
The State Children's Health Insurance Program is a federal program
created by the Balanced Budget Act of 1997. Georgia is one of 17 states
projected to experience a federal-funding shortfall while more than $1
billion remains unspent in the federal SCHIP program. This is enough
funding to cover the federal-funding shortfalls in all 17 states.
