As people pack town hall meetings across the country on plans for health care reform, Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Menlo Park, has not announced plans to hold a similar meeting with her constituents during Congress' August recess.
A spokesperson at Ms. Eshoo's office said he had "no information at this time" on whether Ms. Eshoo would hold a health care town hall meeting. She is planning to host a town hall meeting on the California high-speed rail project in Menlo Park on Wednesday, Aug. 26.
In an electronic newsletter, Ms. Eshoo detailed the health care reform bill drafted by the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which she sits on. She included an attachment with frequently asked questions, and invited people to e-mail her with questions to "save time and your taxpayer dollars!"
She said she plans to offer an amendment that would allow less expensive generic versions of drugs to enter the market.
