Gov. Rod Blagojevich signed legislation that expands two programs that will provide coverage for thousands of working class families.

Blagojevich praised the legislation as an example of how the state budget can help regular people. The new law will expand Kidcare and Family Case.

The measure's total cost to Illinois is about $26 million, and the state will also get $48 million from the federal government.
