Statement by Dr. Terry Brooks, executive director of Kentucky Youth Advocates

Tonight, many families across Kentucky can rest assured that their children’s health insurance is no longer in jeopardy. With the measure passed today by Congress, the bipartisan Children’s Health Insurance Program received a funding extension of six years. The extension of CHIP funding means that 93,000 Kentucky kids can stay up-to-date on their immunizations and wellness visits and have access to much needed dental care and mental health services. In the context of all the gridlock in Washington, we’re relieved to see action taken on this vital children’s health program.


Kentucky Youth Advocates believes all children deserve to be safe, healthy, and secure. As THE independent voice for Kentucky’s children, we work to ensure policymakers create investments and policies that are good for children. Learn more at
