Albany--  Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle hopes to reach a compromise soon on funding for the troubled PeachCare program.

Cagle was a guest Wednesday night at a state Chamber of commerce Quail Hunt dinner at Wynfield Plantation. President Bush recently turned down a request to help states whose insurance programs for children are in trouble.

Cagle says there's still time to solve the problem.

"There are several chances in which Congress can appropriate the funds necessary for that and we're continuing to encourage that and we have dialogue regularly and trying to work with the delegation in getting the help that's necessary," said Cagle.

PeachCare covers about 270,000 children. Federal money for the program could run out as early as next month.
