Testimony sought on universal health care amendment, bill
Health Care for All Oregon (HCAO), for which the Linn County Democratic Central Committee is a member organization, is calling for written testimony on two critical bills.
The HOPE amendment (SJR 12) will establish the right (in principle) of all Oregonians to have access to health care regardless of finances. The other bill, SB 438, will allow the Task Force on Universal Healthcare to continue its critical work on designing such a system for another year.
"HCAO wants each of us to take a few minutes to briefly describe our experiences with the health care system that compel us to support universal health care, said Rick Staggenforg, chair of HCAO Albany. Testimony will go to members of the committee that will decide whether these bills advance to the floor in this legislative session.
