23,000 children in Hidalgo and Cameron counties alone are benefiting from the Chip program after Congress agreed on a deal to re-open the government.  They approved funds for the next 6 years.
The program has had strong bi-partisan support since it was created in 1997. The efforts to re-authorize monies stalled in Congress but, now has the approval to continue for more six years. Dr. Lizardo says the program will help thousands of families.
