Office of the Maine Senate President
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUGUSTA – Maine Senate President Michael Thibodeau (R-Waldo) has announced that Senator Lisa Keim (R-Oxford) will represent Maine at a national forum on health care.
The National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL) has invited 40 new or emerging legislators from state legislatures around the country to the “Invitational Health Seminar for New Legislators,” which will be held on April 28-April 30, 2017 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Among the topics that will be covered are a Medicaid overview and discussion of innovations to the program, access to health care and a discussion on prescription drugs.
“I am looking forward to attending this conference,” Senator Keim said. “There are many uncertainties in the health care industry now; particularly the fate of the Affordable Care Act and what impact any changes to the law will have on Maine.
“It will be beneficial to hear the perspectives of other legislators, to glean ideas that will be helpful and applicable to Maine.”
Senate President Thibodeau said, “In her short time in Augusta, Senator Keim has already gained the reputation as a hard-working and engaged legislator who is focused on getting results for the people she serves in her senate district. That’s why choosing her to represent Maine at this event was a very easy decision.”
