U.S. Rep. Paul Broun will play host to a town hall meeting Monday in Evans to discuss health care.
Broun, a medical doctor, will hold the meeting to hear public concerns regarding new federal health care bills under consideration in Washington.
"I believe that Congress can come together to develop a health care plan that will reduce costs and place you in charge of your own health care," Broun said. "But all ideas should be heard, and any legislation that could change your health care should be crafted very carefully."
In addition to detailing his own ideas on health care reform, Broun will answer questions from those in attendance.
"Dr. Broun has received countless calls, e-mails and letters from constituents, many in Columbia County, who are ... concerned about the proposals coming out of Washington for a government takeover of health care," said his press secretary, Jessica Morris.
The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. in the auditorium of the school board office at 4781 Hereford Farm Road in Evans.
For information, call the 10th District congressional office in Evans at (706) 447-3857.
