New Jersey expands health-insurance plan
AP/Philadelphia Inquirer, July 9, 2008
New Jersey expanded a government health-insurance program to cover more low-income families and all children in the state. The bill signed by Gov. Jon Corzine mandates that children have insurance through the government or a private provider within a year. The move is viewed as the first step toward ensuring all New Jerseyans have health insurance by 2011.
