After months of contentious negotiations, Wednesday Congress passed legislation averting Medicare cuts to advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) and extending the state children’s health insurance program (SCHIP). The passage of these last remaining bills funds the federal government through the remainder of fiscal year 2008 (which began on October 1, 2007). Congress has left Washington for the holidays. President Bush is expected to sign these bills shortly.
