State leaders meet to discuss funding, legislative challenges
Policymakers will have their eyes on the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Legislative Summit from Sunday through Wednesday in Louisville, KY. States' funding crises, including what to do about restrictive Medicaid budgets, will be among the hot topics discussed at the Kentucky International Convention Center.
Sunday will feature a daylong summit on the new healthcare reform law and what it means to the states. Included will be panels on fiscal reform, Medicaid, public health, health insurance exchanges and more. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and other national figures will headline top sessions throughout the week.
