Idaho awarded $9.6 million for community health center improvements

Sen. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d'Alene, says the Legislature may have to intervene on behalf of businesses that feel their property rights are threatened by local ordinances.

Health centers in Nampa, Twin Falls and Glenns Ferry have been awarded money from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services totaling $9.6 million, according to the Idaho Statesman.

The money is part of a large sum of grant money provided under the Affordable Care Act to expand services over the course of the next five years.

    Oh, no! The dreaded federal Affordable Care Act money here in Idaho, trying to improve care for the low income. Shouldn’t we send it back?

  2. Dennis

    Mr Rusche,you should move back to what ever liberal state you moved here from.And yes give it back,since it came out of the HHS slush fund stolen from Medicare fund and never voted on by Congress.And it is another Obama kiss ass for votes.
