Sinema to attend landmark health reform bill signing at White House

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Assistant House Democratic Leader Kyrsten Sinema will attend President Obama’s bill signing ceremony for landmark health reform Tuesday at the White House.

In an historic moment Sunday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed HR 3590, which puts American families and small business owners in control of their own health care and cracks down on waste, fraud and abuse.

“I am deeply honored and proud to support health reform that makes health care affordable for all families, provides greater accountability, ends discrimination against Americans with pre-existing conditions and gets our economy back on track,” Sinema said. “It is incredibly humbling to stand with President Obama during such an historic victory in our nation’s history. Tomorrow’s ceremony marks the culmination of nearly 100 years of attempted health reform and a new beginning for all Americans.”
Sinema was chosen last year as one of 32 state lawmakers nationwide for the White House Health Reform Task Force to help shape national health reform.

Sinema will stand in support while President Obama signs the bill Tuesday at 11 a.m. EST and will be available for comments before and after. To schedule an interview, please e-mail House Democratic PIO Sarah Muench at smuench@azleg.gov
