On Monday evening this week the Corvallis City Council unanimously passed the MVHCA resolution in support of House Bill 3260. This will be proudly presented at the hearing on Friday. Here is President Bud Laurent's message of thanks to the Council:
Dear Mayor Manning and Councilors:
Mid-Valley Health Care Advocates wishes to express the gratitude of our members for your consideration of a resolution in support of HB 3260, which would commission a study on the fiscal implications of several health care delivery and administration options. That your Council supported the resolution unanimously was particularly gratifying to MVHCA; once again, the City of Corvallis distinguishes itself by being a leader of public opinion in Oregon. At the hearing for the bill on April 5th in Salem, the Health Care Committee will learn of Corvallis's support for a comprehensive study of health care alternatives because your Council knows that important decisions require good information as their foundation.
We are particularly grateful to Councilor Richard Hervey for his initiative in placing the resolution before your council. Our local health care reform community is in his debt - and yours.
Bud Laurent, Chair
Mid-Valley Health Care Advocates
