Judge: Illinois governor must halt healthcare expansion

AP/Chicago Tribune, October 16, 2008

A judge has renewed an order banning state officials from making payments under Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's expanded healthcare program, and said it's time for the state to explain how it will comply. In 2007, the state legislature twice turned down the governor's plan to expand healthcare—first for universal coverage, then to expand income-eligibility requirements for state-subsidized care. But Blagojevich began enrolling families anyway, claiming he had sufficient authority. The move prompted a lawsuit by a lawyer and two business-group representatives.
