Congress has adjourned for the year without fully finishing its spending plan—holding off a government shutdown by passing a few months of stopgap funding.
It includes some money for the Children’s Health Insurance Program—something the deadlock had called into serious question.
But Pennsylvania officials say that doesn’t help much.
In the days leading up to the stopgap agreement, they had warned the program would have to end sometime early next year if federal lawmakers didn’t act.
The agreement hands down $3 billion to states.
