Senator John H. Adler

CHERRY HILL – Senator John Adler will be joined by Governor Jon S. Corzine and Human Services Commissioner Jennifer Velez tomorrow as they call on all of New Jersey’s Congressional delegation to vote to override President Bush’s veto of the SCHIP Reauthorization Act.

The three will discuss the impact to New Jersey’s FamilyCare program if the override vote fails at 11:30 a.m. in front of the office of Dr. Flo Rosen at 600 Rt. 70 West in Cherry Hill.

“If this veto override fails, over 11,000 New Jersey children will lose access to their pediatricians for regular check-ups and vaccinations or whenever they get sick,” explained Senator Adler, D-Cherry Hill. “Congress needs to show real leadership on Thursday and tell the President that middle class families deserve health care for their children.”
