News Alert: Public Option Hearing Set for Thursday March 5th, 11am, at the Legislative Office Building (LOB) next to State Capitol.

The proposed bill Senate Bill 346: An Act Concerning Public Option for Health Care in Connecticut was released this past week.

The initial bill hearing in front of the state representatives and senators of the legislative insurance committee is scheduled this week. Supporters of Connecticut’s health plans and the healthcare industry should attend. Multiple groups advocating for a government run health system will be there testifying for this bill. We need to let the legislators know that we want to protect health plan and healthcare jobs in this state, and not turn over our health system to the government. The LOB is a public building and anyone can attend.
