Please act quickly to ensure that Nebraska kids can continue get coverage from CHIP without interruption. I’m asking you to vote YES on H.R. 2, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act, so Nebraska children and families that rely on CHIP will continue to have access to affordable, high quality health care.

 

Sincerely, [your name]”
