On Friday at 8:40 AM, Democratic governors will kick off NGA weekend with a joint press conference to highlight the damaging impact that the pending Senate health care bill would have on their states. As the Senate considers changes to its bill, Democratic governors will discuss the overwhelming opposition to the bill from red, blue and purple states across the country.
Democratic governors discussing the impact on their states will include: DGA Chair Dan Malloy (CT), Gina Raimondo (RI), John Hickenlooper (CO), Steve Bullock (MT), John Bel Edwards (LA) and Roy Cooper (NC).
