Sen. Karen Keiser, chair of the Senate Health & Long-Term Care Committee, and Rep. Eileen Cody, chair of the House Health Care and Wellness Committee, will hit the road, starting tonight, to talk health care reform.

In a press released the two said they wanted to engage Washingtonians in a discussion on how federal health reform efforts could impact Washington residents.

"We look forward to a rational, informed discussion about this issue," Keiser said. "We can't continue to spend trillions each year on an outdated health care system that excludes millions of Americans. Some type of reform will happen, and states are going to be charged with implementing any federal changes. We want to discuss how reform could impact us here in Washington."

Space will be limited, so participants are encouraged to arrive early.
