Lawmakers unveil website for study on federal health care law

The co-chairs of a special joint legislative committee studying the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act announced Wednesday that a new website has been launched to help Oklahomans stay informed. Sen. Gary Stanislawski and Rep. Glen Mulready said the website would make it easier for anyone interested in the committee’s work to stay informed.

“Oklahomans are very concerned about the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and how it could affect their own healthcare,” said Stanislawski, R-Tulsa. “We wanted to make it as easy as possible for them to find out when the meetings will be, the topics we’ll be covering, and give quick access to news coverage and video from our meetings.”

The website address is www.okhealthcare.info with content being updated regularly throughout the interim.

“As we work to see what our next steps should be, we want to be sure this process is as open and transparent as possible,” explained Mulready, R-Tulsa. “This website is basically a one-stop shop for Oklahomans who want to keep up-to-date on this important legislative study.”

In addition, anyone who would like to receive updates on upcoming meetings can send an email request to stanislawski@oksenate.gov or glen.mulready@okhouse.gov.
