Universal healthcare bill readied for New Jersey
Philadelphia Inquirer, March 17, 2008
Under a state senator's plan, all New Jersey residents would be required to have some form of health insurance within three years. Sen. Joseph F. Vitale is calling for an expansion of FamilyCare, the state's version of the federal program to provide free or low-cost health insurance to children from low-income families. An estimated 1.4 million New Jerseyans do not have health insurance.
