Health Care Hearing An Opportunity to Speak Out for Texans

AUSTIN - There isn't any state whose people have more to gain from health reform than Texas. Our kids, families, and young adults already are getting better bargains and reliability in their health care, while more benefits kick in during 2014. On Monday, February 27, the Insurance Committee and the Public Health Committee of the Texas House are set to hold a joint hearing on the state's role in implementing the Affordable Care Act.

It is no secret that many Texas legislators are not fans of the ACA. Texas Well and Healthy, a statewide organizing and community education campaign, sent an alert Thursday, seeking voices of Texans who have benefited from the provisions in the law. The hearing offers an opportunity for public testimony. Each person will receive three minutes to speak. Below are the details for the hearing. Those interested in testifying are urged to contact [email protected].

Joint Committee Hearing: Public Health Committee and Insurance Committee

Monday, February 27 10:30  AM Texas State Capitol Room: E1.030 (on the first floor of the Capitol Extension)
