LATEST SENATOR KING
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) today announced his support for the Community Health Investment, Modernization, and Excellence (CHIME) Act. This legislation would support Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), which provide vital health care services to rural communities in Maine, by reauthorizing the Community Health Center Fund (CHCF) and the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) for five years.
“Federally Qualified Health Centers are critical to the health and vibrancy of Maine’s rural communities, providing people across our state with access to patient-driven care,” Senator King said. “Washington’s inability to adequately fund community health centers puts millions throughout the country in danger of losing access to quality health services and creates uncertainty for tens of thousands of dedicated workers in the health care industry. Congress must act so we can do right by the American people and fund community health centers, which mean so much to so many.”
