New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty Calls on Senators to Support CHIP Reauthorization

NM: The New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty urged its members to call on Senators Heinrich and Udall to support HR 2, which proposed CHIP reauthorization for two years. The Center noted that more than 9,000 children in New Mexico relied on CHIP in 2013 and that the State could lose up to $24 million in federal funds if CHIP funding lapses.
