Publication Date: May 2007
Publisher(s): Families USA
In this report, Families USA estimates how much new funding Wyoming could receive for Kid Care CHIP and EqualityCare (Medicaid) if SCHIP is reauthorized with the full $50 billion in new federal funds. We also examine the effect this new money will have on Wyoming's economy, measured in increased business activity, jobs, and wages. We found that, for a whole host of economic reasons, fully funding SCHIP in accordance with the budget resolutions will be good for Wyoming.
