In a recent report by Families USA, the organization urges increased federal subsidies for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and Medicaid be part of the recovery package the new Congress and incoming Obama administration are putting together.  According to a Deseret Morning News article Utah would likely receive up to $175 million in additional funding if these two programs were included in the recovery package.  This would lead to more than 3,500 new jobs in Utah and more than $300 million in additional business activity.
