The two moms and a third woman asked a Cole County judge to force the state to give them coverage under the government health care program, as called for in a constitutional amendment approved by voters last year. The plaintiffs argued in the lawsuit that they need the health insurance program to get treatment for illnesses including asthma and diabetes.
The plaintiffs also asked that the lawsuit cover the rest of the estimatedadults who are newly eligible for the program.
