GOP Representatives Talk Policy with Experts

Several members of the GOP Caucus and their staff attended Capital Campus Massachusetts today, a seminar that brought policy experts to Boston to talk about the issues facing the state in the upcoming year.

The seminar was broken up into four sessions, focusing on the following issues: The Economics of Health Care Reform in Massachusetts, Improving Outcomes in Education, Eminent Domain and Budget Woes. As Legislators, we are constantly looking for ways to improve the lives of residents here in Massachusetts. Through educational forums such as this one, we are able to hear what other states are doing to tackle similar challenges.

Representatives who attended today’s forum can be seen in the above picture and include: Jay Barrows, Vinny deMacedo, Paul Frost, Susan Gifford, Robert Hargraves, Brad Jones, George Peterson, Elizabeth Poirier and Richard Ross. Also seen in the picture are David Tuerck of the Beacon Hill Institute and James Musser, Director of State Outreach for the Mercatus Center.
The event was sponsored by the Beacon Hill Institute at Suffolk University and the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.
