Owens to hold telephone town hall Thursday
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Bill Owens will hold a telephone town hall from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 12, to answer questions about the Affordable Care Act.
A representative from New York State of Health, New York’s state-run health insurance marketplace, will join him to answer questions related to the state’s rollout of the Affordable Care Act.
