    In this Feb. 28, 2012 photo, Madeline Hutchinson wipes a tear during an interview at her home in Salem, Ore. Pregnant with her seventh child and desperate to kick a methamphetamine habit, Hutchinson turned to a program from the local Medicaid provider that connected her with a mentor and other support that helped her stay off drugs and give birth to a healthy boy.  Emmanuel, now 2, was born drug-free and is the only one of her children still in her custody. But Hutchinson?s health provider can?t get reimbursed for much of the treatment she credits with saving her life, keeping her healthy and protecting the health of her child. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)

    FILE - In this Oct. 6, 2008 file photo, high-rise condos line the Miami River in Miami. With jobs and federal aid at stake, dozens of U.S. cities are lining up to contest their 2010 census counts as too low. A decade ago, there were 1,200 challenges filed by cities, towns and counties. Based on feedback so far, the U.S. Conference of Mayors is predicting a big jump in that number, due in part to tighter budgets that make local officials more sensitive to potential drop-offs in federal money for Medicaid and other programs. Nearly $450 billion in federal aid is distributed to states based on population each year, or roughly $1,500 per person. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky, File)
