“These public health programs are vital to helping the most vulnerable among us,” said Congressman Walberg. “Thousands of low-income children and pregnant mothers rely on Michigan’s CHIP program, and many more families turn to a community health center in our state for their health care needs. The Championing Healthy Kids Act is an important bill for the health and wellbeing of children and families in Michigan, and I’m pleased it passed the House today.”
Congressman Walberg serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the House Education and the Workforce Committee as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions. For more information on Walberg's work in Congress visit walberg.house.gov.
