(KSL News) Utah Congressman Jim Matheson says real harm will be done to children in working class families if President Bush vetoes the current version of a bill expanding the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).

President Bush vetoed the first version of the bill, which expanded the program to cover more children, and has promised to veto this one as well. He says not enough changes have been made.

Matheson is a co-sponsor of the current bill and says signing it is the "morally right" thing for the president to do.
