out below is a summary of Federal Issues Committee activity, including the
additional action on those items (if any) by other C.A.R.
The Chair convened the mmeting of the Federal Issues Committee at 3:00
PM. ACTION ITEM - Health Care
A motion was made and seconded:
That staff be directed to prepare a new issues briefing paper for
presentation to the Federal Issues Committee in October to assist C.A.R. in
establishing policy in which we can:
-- Evaluate any proposed legislation
-- Advocate for the health care priorities we support.
Further, the issues briefing paper should establish a matrix identifying
all of the health care options and principles in general discussion so that
the committee can decide those that we support, are neutral on, or oppose
in order to allow efficient analysis of all future proposals.
Lastly, we should set a goal of debating and reaching conclusions by the
January 2009 C.A.R meetings.
