District United Methodist Women - Sage



We voted, but that's not the end of the story!

 

Idaho United Methodist Women Legislative Event February 24-25, 2019


Excitement builds for the United Methodist Women Legislative Event, February 24- 25, 2019 in Boise, sponsored by the Oregon-Idaho Conference of United Methodist Women. 

Idaho voters approved the expansion of Medicaid in Idaho by a wide margin.  Sage District United Methodist Women have adopted Maternal and Child Health as the focus of our social justice efforts, so our question is:  how do we proceed to help ensure the expanded Medicaid program is properly funded and implemented? 

Local advocates will be speaking at the Sunday seminars, beginning with District 18 Representative Ilana Rubel at 3:30. Rep. Rubel will explain what is happening in the Idaho legislature to fund the Medicaid expansion.   She will also address the status of the bill to repeal the religious exemption for parents who withhold life-saving medical care for their children. 

With all the attention on healthcare this year, we don’t want to forget education.  Rod Gramer of Idaho Business Education will review pending legislation to fund and promote education in Idaho.
 
Monday, the 25th, attendees will have the opportunity to have a guided tour of the capitol, sit in on committee meetings, and have lunch with legislators who welcome a lively exchange of ideas. 

Register and join us!  Invite a friend or two - and they don't have to be a member of United Methodist Women to attend.  Everyone is welcome!  Download the rest of the information and the registration form HERE.
