Sen. Laurie Monnes Anderson says Oregon had a head start on the recently passed federal bill, thanks to the state's health-care efforts that were already under way.
Oregon had already begun expanding health care to 80,000 more children, for example, so the federal health-care reform will continue to build on that.
The same state legislation also ensured that under the Oregon Health Plan, 25,000 low-income adults would continue to get coverage, and as many as 35,000 more will be added by 2011.
The federal legislation will expand eligibility for this coverage even more under Medicaid, the joint federal-state program of health insurance for low-income people.
