WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Monday, July 13, U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) will host a telephone town hall to hear his constituents’ thoughts on health care as Congress makes reforming health care a top priority this summer.
“Health care reform must bring down costs for Washington state families and businesses, preserve patient choice, protect consumers from discrimination because of pre-existing conditions, reward quality, efficient care and ensure a fair deal for Washington state,” said Larsen. “I invite my constituents to join my Telephone Town Hall to share their thoughts on reforming health care. I want to bring local ideas to Congress and ensure that health care reform works for our state.”
Congress will be in session tonight, and Larsen will be hosting the call from his office in Washington, D.C.
