New Speaker Added to Quarterly Meeting
We are pleased to announce that lead House Republican budget negotiator and Medicaid working group member Representative Tom Demmer will join our next quarterly meeting on May 6. HFS Director Theresa Eagleson is already confirmed. In addition to being the point-person on a host of healthcare-related topics for the House Republicans, he also is the minority spokesman on House Appropriations: Human Services and the Prescription Drug Affordability committees - two committees that have seen their fair share of anti-business pieces of legislation this year.
