I was stunned to read of Gov. Parnell's decision to veto additional funding for Denali KidCare.
What is it about affording pregnant women prenatal care and young children health care that is not in line with family values? Gov. Parnell marched arm-and-arm down Franklin Street this spring with the very same people he cast adrift with the veto of this funding. I just don't understand the double-speak coming from him. How can you say you support women and children and not give them the funding to make that support a reality? Disappointment does not begin to describe the feelings of those who truly work to support families in this state regarding the Governor's decision to veto funding for HB 13. I urge Gov. Parnell to sign the bill when it comes across his desk this month.
