WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after the Senate passed the House version of the Children’s Health Insurance Program bill:
 
“The House will not send the Children’s Health Insurance Program bill to the President immediately.  We will continue to negotiate in hopes of securing a new bipartisan compromise that will insure 10 million children.  Congressional Republican leaders should work to forge a deal, not put up obstacles to keep children from receiving the health care they need and deserve.”
