Grant Money is Rejected as Federal Healthcare Law Nears

$365,000 in federal grant money has been declined by a nonprofit group. The money would have helped West Virginians sign up for health insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act, but West Virginia Parent Training and Information Inc. declined the money because of what they called "unforseen circumstances" according to the Charleston Gazette. Last week, state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey directed the nonprofit group to answer 26 questions about the group's personnel and hiring practices. U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller has been critical of Morrisey, accusing him of bullying WVPTI and other groups.
