ATLANTA (June 20, 2017) | Sen. Kay Kirkpatrick (R – Marietta) was appointed by Lt. Governor Casey Cagle as the newest member of Georgia’s Health Care Reform Task Force.
“I am honored to be able to serve as a member of the Health Care Reform Task Force,” said Sen. Kirkpatrick. “I look forward to working with my colleagues in the senate and community partners as we explore ways to bring the best healthcare possible to Georgians.”
“Georgia’s health care system demands reform. Statewide, costs are too high – and increasing by too much, too quickly – while access to care and choices for care are too limited,” Cagle added. “We must recognize that centralized health care – administered, delivered, and regulated by politicians and bureaucrats in Washington D.C. – will never provide the solutions for care that Georgians need, at prices we can all afford. It is time for Georgia to act on behalf of all our patients, families, and communities. I look forward to working with Senator Kirkpatrick and the members of our Health Care Reform Task Force to lead the way to a better system for our state.”
The Health Care Reform Task Force has already held two meetings and will hold its third public meeting at Tift Regional Medical Center on July 10th.
