In this video press release, Assemblywoman Linda Stender (D-Union), Assembly Majority Leader Joseph Cryan (D-Union), Assemblywoman Nellie Pou (D-Passaic) and Assemblyman Patrick J. Diegnan, Jr. (D-Middlesex) - for the fourth time in two weeks - call on Gov. Chris Christie to take action on their legislation that would restore $7.5 million for women's health programs in the state budget enacted July 1.
The legislation (S-2139/A-3019) would reverse Gov. Christie's $7.5 million cut to family planning and women's health services in New Jersey. It also would require the state to apply for an expansion of Medicaid coverage, to allow women between 134 and 200 percent of the federal poverty level - or earning between $29,547 and $44,100 a year in income - to receive family planning services under the Medicaid program. By expanding the enrollment, the state would receive $9 in federal reimbursement for every additional $1 spent for family planning services through the state's Medicaid program.
