House Repeals School-Based Health Care Center Expenditures

H.R. 1214 would repeal a program established by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that provides grant funds to eligible entities to establish health centers in school-based settings and would rescind any unobligated funds appropriated to that program. The CBO estimates that it would save $100 million for the fiscal years 2011 and 2012, minus any funds that have already been spent.

The measure passed by a vote of 235-191, with three Democrats (Altmire (PA-4), Boren (OK-2), and McIntyre (NC-7)) joining the majority of Republicans, and five Republicans dissenting: Heck (NV-3), Kelly (PA-3), LaTourette (OH-14), and West (FL-22).
