Pa. court: Reinstate health-care funding for the poor

Pa. court: Reinstate health-care funding for the poor 06 Mar 2013 A state judge has ordered the Corbett administration to reinstate funding for programs that provided health insurance to tens of thousands of low-income Pennsylvanians. In his ruling Tuesday, Commonwealth Court President Judge Dan Pellegrini found that two statutes that stripped money from the adultBasic and Medicaid programs were unconstitutional because they diverted money from the federal tobacco settlement to finance items other than health care in the general budget. AdultBasic was created in 2002 to serve lower-income Pennsylvanians who fell into a gap.
