TGI Friday Edition

I looked. I mean, I went through the NY Times, Washington Post, LA Times, USA Today, Wall St. Journal, Huffington Post, Politico, the Hill, the Hartford Courant, Connecticut Mirror and CT News Junkie, and there's just not a lot of health news this morning. Here are a few items:

Congress passed the child nutrition bill, expanding school lunches and setting nutritional standards for them. A rare show of bipartisanship, but a good one.

Meanwhile, Arizona has stopped paying for some transplant under its Medicaid program -- a certain death for some patients.

And here's some more on the report released yesterday about how states are handling requests for health insurance premium rate increases -- and the need for Connecticut and other states to beef up staffing and rigorous review if we are ever to get a handle on premiums.

That's it. If I find anything interesting later in the day, I'll let you know. Have a good one. Jennifer
