Good morning ... Committees in both the House and Senate will mark up bills today to reauthorize the Children's Health Insurance Program, even as the bipartisan aura around that effort is starting to fade. Just a reminder that federal CHIP funding has already expired. The longer this takes, the more states will have to get serious about scaling back their programs.
What we're watching today: CHIP markups in the Senate Finance Committee (at 9:30 a.m., livestream here) and House Energy and Commerce Committee (at 1 p.m., details here).
Senate confirmation vote for Eric Hogan to be deputy HHS secretary.
What we're watching this week: Progress toward a bipartisan ACA stabilization bill in the Senate HELP Committee.
