|The Consortium for Idahoans with Disabilities and Medicaid Matters in Idaho is coordinating a Day at the Capitol (Feb 3rd 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.).
It is critical that people with disabilities, family members, advocates and providers come to the Capitol on February 3rd. In addition to attending the JFAC public hearing, it is important to meet 1:1 with your local legislator. Organizations will be available to assist you to arrange a meeting with your legislator while you are in town. The 4th floor of the Capitol will have representatives from 14 advocacy and provider association groups to provide assistance, information and support.
In addition, representatives of these groups are available to assist you prior to Feb. 3rd to:
- Write your testimony
- Schedule a meeting with your legislator
- Tell your story of why Medicaid is important in your life and the impact of changes
- If you are coming from outside Boise and need assistance with a place to stay OR if you are able to assist by providing a place for out of town people to stay, please contact Richelle Tierney firstname.lastname@example.org. It is critical that we get as many people to Boise on February 3rd as possible. Everyone's help is appreciated!
LET US KNOW IF YOU ARE COMING - We are working hard to turn out people for this very important event. Last year, legislators got a strong message that Medicaid Matters in Idaho by the hundreds of people who attended the JFAC hearing, the HB221 hearing and the Medicaid Matters rallies.
Send us a quick e-mail response to let us know if you are planning to come on February 3rd and if there is anything we can help you with prior to or on the day of the hearing.
Please pass on this date to your friends and family and encourage them to come and show their support!
