DENVER — Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2017 — Gov. John Hickenlooper today sent an emergency supplemental request to the Joint Budget Committee (JBC) to extend Colorado’s Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) through February.
"Vulnerable children and pregnant women are being used as bargaining chips,” said Governor John Hickenlooper. “This request is not a cure. It’s a one-time only bandaid as we wait for Congress to do what’s right and secure CHIP funding.”
