Senate and House Reach Accord on Health Insurance for Children – washingtonpost.com
Senate and House negotiators from both parties reached a final deal yesterday on an expansion of a health insurance program for the children of the working poor, just a day after President Bush vowed to veto it.

House and Senate leaders scheduled votes for next week on the $35 billion expansion, a measure that has bipartisan support, even from some of the president’s staunchest supporters. That broad backing could give Congress a long-shot chance to override a Bush veto for the first time.
