State Rep. Verla Insko plans to attend a White House reception next week that is being held to recognize state lawmakers working on health care reform.
Insko, a Chapel Hill Democrat, is one of 40 lawmakers participating in the White House State Legislators Working Group on Health Care Reform, according to a news release.
The group of about 40 state lawmakers from around the nation plan and initiate state-level activities in support of President Barack Obama’s health care reform efforts. In North Carolina, state legislators held community meetings to discuss health care and met with Sen. Kay Hagan and their members of Congress to discuss the cost to states of delaying health care reform.
Rep. Pricey Harrison, a Greensboro Democrat, also plans to attend the Dec. 15 reception.
