Another Presidential Veto of SCHIP: Next Steps for Congress, Fiscal Implications for Illinois

President Bush has vetoed a second version of the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (H.R. 3963). The new bill was approved by a vote of 265-to-142 in the U.S. House of Representatives on October 25 and by a vote of 64-to-30 in the Senate on November 1. Negotiations to achieve veto-proof majorities in both Houses reached an impasse, and the second bill was sent to the President on November 30, although he waited until December 12 to veto it.
