Greg Walden to focus on health care, economic development in Central Oregon on Friday 

BEND — U.S. Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) will be in Central Oregon on Friday to hear input from Bend physicians about the new health care law and to discuss economic development at the Madras Airport.

In the morning, Walden will meet with anesthesiologists and other doctors at St. Charles Hospital to hear their perspective of Obamacare as the new law goes into effect. In recent visits to Central Oregon—including a health care forum in May; town hall meetings in Bend, La Pine, Madras, and Prineville; and community business leader meetings in Sisters, Redmond, and Bend—Walden has heard many concerns about the new health care law, changes to Medicare, and other changes to Oregon’s health care system. As a senior member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Walden has a key role in oversight of the law.

In the afternoon, Walden will meet with Erickson Aviation at the Madras Airport to learn more about their expansion plans and to give an update on his work to create jobs in Central Oregon.
