2013 Week 5: Obamacare and McCleary

For the Friday Phone Briefing of Feb. 15, 2013, Jocelyn McCabe, AWB vice president of communications, is joined by Matt Canedy, AWB government affairs director, and Gary Chandler, AWB vice president of government affairs.

Canedy discusses emerging health care and education issues. With the implementation of the Affordiable Care Act, the future of the state's successful Associated Health Plans is in doubt. Canedy discusses what is going on and what you can do to help save these important health care options.

Canedy also discusses the issue of education. With the McCleary decision and a new governor as a backdrop, the Legislature is moving forward with various education reforms and funding options. Canedy gives us a temperature check of what is going on in education and what has a chance of passing this year.

Finally, Gary Chandler joins us to round up some of the other issues that AWB is tracking. This includes: the Governor's job package, the budget and transportation.
