Eliot Engel Co-Sponsors Bill to Fund CHIP and Community Health Center Re-authorization PDF Print Email

By Bryant Daniels, Director of Public Affairs, Office of Congressman Eliot L. Engel


Dec. 13, 2017:   As Congressional Republicans continue to stonewall any movement on reauthorizing the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Community Health Centers, and other important public health programs, Congressman Eliot L. Engel is co-sponsoring a bill (H.R. 4541) that reauthorizes all of these programs – without stripping funds from other health care priorities.  

Funding for CHIP, known in New York as “Child Health Plus,” expired on September 30, putting health care for nine million American kids at risk. H.R. 4541 fully extends CHIP for five years and Community Health Centers and other important public health programs for two years.

This bill also takes important steps to address the critical health care needs of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  

This proposal stands in stark contrast to the House Republican plan, which robs the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Medicare.

“For months, Congressional Republicans have stalled any meaningful bipartisan action on CHIP and other important health programs, and, instead, have chosen an unacceptable path that strips health care away from hundreds of thousands of people, sabotages the Affordable Care Act, and undermines Medicare,” Engel said. “It’s long past time for Congress to fund health care for more than 600,000 children here in New York who are living healthier lives today thanks to CHIP.”

Excellent! Another missive from your fearless Representative Engel.
When did My Hometown Bronxville become an extension of the NY Times?
As someone who grew up and lived in Bronxville before leaving to serve my country I enjoyed reading 'MHB' for updates and stories. Now all I see is something I could read in Huffington Post. Shame on you editors.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
