Gregoire vetoes Whatcom County health pilot, but OKs other projects
The Bellingham Herald
"Funding for a pilot project to provide health care to 1,000 Whatcom County residents waiting for health insurance was vetoed by Gov. Chris Gregoire on Tuesday, May 4, but two other projects that local legislators included made it through. State Rep. Kelli Linville, D-Bellingham, who led the House discussion on budget writing, had included nearly $2.5 million for the local pilot project and a separate one in Spokane County to provide health care services to low-income adults."
