Interview: Governor Jim Douglas on S-chip funding

Print More

The Bush administration has proposed new federal guidelines on the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, also known as S-Chip.

In Vermont, S-chip funds help pay for the "Dr. Dynosaur" program, which covers children at up to 300% of the poverty level.

The new proposal would restrict funding for S-chip to children below 250% of the federal poverty level.

VPR’s Neal Charnoff asked Governor Jim Douglas for his reaction to the new S-chip guidelines.
