Denali Kidcare Gains Endorsement of AFN
AFN Delegates voted overwhelming to support Denali KidCare
ANCHORAGE-AFN delegates voted overwhelmingly this afternoon during the 2011 Annual Convention to pass Resolution 11-09 supporting Denali KidCare. The resolution calls for the Alaska State Legislature to pass SB5 immediately and to restore the qualifying income eligibility standard from 175% to 200% of the Federal Poverty Level for Denali KidCare, the level at which the program first began in Alaska in 1997. It also calls on Governor Parnell to sign the bill into law upon receiving it on his desk.
