Unfinished Business: Health Care for Children
- Issue: On Jan 10, 2005 Gov. Gary Locke leaves office. The legacy he leaves behind for the health of children is still unwritten. Before we turn our attention to whomever is Washington's next governor, we ask you to urge Gov. Locke to take care of unfinished business. Health care for thousands of lov-income children in our state hinges on a pending decision from Gov. Locke. Please urge him to remove barriers to children's health coverage before he leaves office on Jan. 10.
