Washington, DC, November 3, 2017

 Congressman Billy Long (MO-07) released the following statement after the passage of H.R. 3922, the CHAMPIONING HEALTHY KIDS Act:

“Today, the House of Representatives voted in favor of extending important public health priorities,” said Rep. Long. “This bill extends funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program, Federally Qualified Health Centers and other public health programs such as the National Health Service Corps in a fiscally responsible manner. With southwest Missouri being predominantly rural, this bill is vital to ensuring my constituents have access to the care they need and deserve.”
