Reps. Sinema, Cloves Campbell to host discussion on health reform law in Phoenix

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Assistant House Democratic Leader Kyrsten Sinema, a member of the White House Health Reform Task Force, and Rep. Cloves Campbell, D-Phoenix (District 16) will host a discussion about the new health reform law next week in Phoenix.

When: June 3, 6 to 8 p.m.
Where: South Mountain Community College, Student Union building, 7050 S. 24th St., Phoenix

President Obama signed health reform into law this year. Sinema and Campbell will discuss health reform with easy-to-understand details, answer questions and explain what the new law means for Arizona.

“Health reform 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. “As a member of the White House Health Reform Task Force, I’m happy to answer any questions about the new health reform law.”

Sinema was one of 32 legislators nationwide selected to President Obama’s White House Health Reform Task Force. Working in the task force, Sinema shared best practices and lessons learned from Arizona, which helped shape national health reform. She has worked tirelessly on the state and federal level to create dialogue among legislators and leaders.

“I’m happy to discuss the aspects of the new health reform law with the people of District 16,” Campbell said. “At a time when the state is kicking thousands of kids and seniors off of health care, it’s important to know how Arizona’s families can have access to quality and affordable care.”
