(KSL News) Sen. Orrin Hatch is at odds with the White House over expanding a federal health insurance program.

Hatch says expanding the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) will help millions of kids currently without coverage.

However, President Bush says the bill is a step toward government-run health care and has vowed to veto it.

Hatch said he will be surprised if that veto actually happens since the bill has come through a series of bipartisan efforts and because the current program is set to expire at the end of the month.
