Salem, OR—Governor Kate Brown on Thursday will release an analysis of the impacts the American Health Care Act would have on Oregon. Governor Brown directed the Oregon Health Authority and the Department of Consumer Business Services to compile the analysis to inform deliberations in Congress.

"Our analysis found that for every step of progress that Oregon made, the American Health Care Act will take Oregon three steps back," said Governor Brown. "Since 2014, we have made tremendous progress to ensure that nearly every Oregonian has access to health insurance coverage. The ripple effect of pulling healthcare out from under Oregonians is widespread, from families, to doctors, to hospitals. I look forward to sharing their voices with Oregon and Congress."

Governor Brown will provide brief remarks and will be joined by Oregonians from across the state whose coverage is at risk, as well as health care providers and employers. They are among the stories from on 95percentoregon.com. Following the press conference, Lynne Saxton, Director of the Oregon Health Authority, and Patrick Allen, Director of the Department of Consumer Business Services, will hold a media availability.

The report will be available at the press conference and the event will be live streamed by Legislative Media.
