Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Friday, June 8.

  • From Rep. Donald McEachin’s office:

    WASHINGTON – Congressman A. Donald McEachin (VA-04) issued this statement on his vote against the House Republicans’ rescission package that would, among many other harmful changes, leave fewer healthcare resources for millions of American children:

    “The Children’s Health Insurance Program – otherwise known as CHIP – is the historically bipartisan program that has sought to ensure our most in-need children have access to health care. Without even the benefit of hearings, the Republicans decided to eliminate $7 billion in funding for this critical program—funds that could otherwise be used to improve public health. I voted against this bill because we have an absolute responsibility to our children to ensure they can receive medical care.”
