Governor Kitzhaber Applauds Joint Committee's Passage of Health Care Transformation Bill

(SALEM, Ore,) –Governor Kitzhaber commended the Joint Special Committee on Health Care Transformation for passing House Bill 3650, Health Care Transformation, a significant piece of his health care agenda.

“Last night, the legislative committee on Health Care Transformation passed out a very significant bill down to the Ways and Means Committee. This is a very important first step in reducing the cost of healthcare for Oregonians while improving quality. As you know the cost of health care is perhaps the fastest growing cost for families, individuals, and businesses, and this move by the legislature is an important first step in giving Oregon a leadership role in reforming the health care system for our state and, perhaps, the nation.”
