As Congress delays moving forward on the passage of comprehensive
health care reform, progressive state leaders from across the country
have been demanding passage of reform
as critical for families across the nation. But that doesn't mean they
are waiting; state leaders are moving forward, laying the groundwork
for how national changes should be implemented, and creating the
momentum for other meaningful health care reforms in their states.
As the U.S. Congress enters its final push to enact health care reform legislation, state legislators working with Progressive States Network have been raising their voices to make sure key state concerns are addressed in final negotiations.
