What Washington Can Do

(one State’s opinion)

  • Develop national standards
  • Funding – describe, not prescribe
  • Fund pilot and evaluation of difficult solutions (e.g., financial sustainability)
  • Find out what states need
  • Please, not more policy committees
slide12

Federal Action

“…the most promising avenue for extending health insurance coverage, limiting growth of spending, and improving the quality of care lies in action by the states, abetted by federal legislation and regulation that will encourage this state action”

Henry J. Aaron, The Brookings Institution

Testimony Before the Committee on the Budget

September 11, 2007
