U.S. questions Calif.'s healthcare plan for children of working poor

(SACRAMENTO) Federal health officials are casting doubt on a last-gasp funding scheme by California to keep nearly 700,000 children from being yanked from its government health insurance program for the working poor.

U.S. health officials say the plan adopted by the state during the final days of the legislative session in September and signed into law by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger may not meet regulatory muster.
