Healthcare Reform Campaign Launched in West Virginia

America's Agenda and our West Virginia partners launched The West Virginians' Campaign for a Healthy Future, a broad-based campaign initiative to enact statewide, comprehensive healthcare reform legislation by 2009.. The Campaign brings together an unprecedented spectrum, of labor, business, religious, and healthcare organizations with a shared commitment to enacting legislative reforms that will guarantee affordable access to quality health care for every West Virginian.

David Haney, Executive Director of the WV Education Association, explained at a recent campaign event: “This Campaign will launch a public education campaign to assure that West Virginians understand the opportunity this legislative initiative holds for improving their futures.

“Our public education campaign will include messages on TV, radio, in local newspapers. We're on the internet. And we'll be listening to West Virginians through opinion polls and town hall meetings throughout the state. We'll be faithfully reporting the concerns and expectations we're hearing from the people of West Virginia to the leaders we've elected to represent us.”


Legislative Leadership
 

The joint chairs of the state legislative committee on healthcare, Senator Roman Prezioso and Delegate Don Perdue, have endorsed the Campaign's Standards for Healthcare Reform legislation – standards that would that would make high quality health care affordable for every state resident, regardless of age, income, or health status.

The legislators have launched an innovative legislative development process that engages private citizens with state legislators in workgroups to craft elements of a statewide reform plan. The workgroups are expected to complete their initial recommendations in the fall.
