Ranker will host health insurance 'town hall' Nov. 23 in Bellingham

As Congress debates the details of President Obama’s plan for reforming health care coverage, state Sen. Kevin Ranker will host a town hall forum to hear from 40th District constituents and help inform residents about any potential changes in Washington.

The forum is Nov. 23, 7-9 p.m., in the Whatcom County Council Chambers, 311 Grand Ave., Suite 105, Bellingham.

Ranker will be joined by Sen. Karen Keiser, D-Kent, chairwoman of the Senate Health and Long-term Care Committee; and Rep. Eileen Cody, D-Seattle, chairwoman of the House Health Care and Wellness Committee.

They will discuss the state-level changes for health care and the impact and opportunities presented by any changes at the federal level.
