State children's health insurance programs won't face federal cuts, administration says

Arizona, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey and Rhode Island are projected to use their entire federal contribution for the State Children's Health Insurance Program in the budget year that begins Friday, said the private Center for Budget and Policy Priorities.
