Key New Jersey senator deplores proposed healthcare cuts

Philadelphia Inquirer, May 13, 2009
A leading healthcare advocate in the New Jersey Senate said that he would not vote to approve a budget that tightens access to the state's FamilyCare program, and suggested several possible funding sources. Last year, New Jersey expanded FamilyCare, the state program that offers free or low-cost health insurance to children in lower-income families, to include more parents. But faced with a dire fiscal situation, Gov. Jon Corzine has proposed restricting new adult enrollment in FamilyCare in the fiscal year that begins July 1 to save $9.7 million.
