Proposition 2: How did we get here and where are we going?. Emily Strizich and Dan Schmidt will discuss Proposition 2 at this special LWV forum. The discussion will include a history of Idaho's health care policies and politics, including who has benefited and who has been left behind in the current system, and legislative efforts to improve Idaho's health care system and why they haven't been successful. They will also present information about a citizen-led initiative to expand coverage to 62,000 Idahoans that fall into the health care coverage gap and the moral and financial benefit of voting yes on Proposition 2.

Strizich is co-founder of Reclaim Idaho and co-chair of Idahoans for Healthcare. Schmidt is a family physician and former Idaho state senator.
