"Recognizing the importance of health care reform in West Virginia."
Whereas, The opportunity to have access to health care is a basic need that all West Virginians share and it is the foundation for future generations; and
We believe that West Virginia's crisis of health care affordability can be solved; and
All West Virginians should have access to quality, affordable health care and these costs should not burden future generations. The care should be available without discrimination or exclusions based on income, medical condition, employment status, gender, age, geography, or other factors ; and
Wellness and prevention efforts, including changes in personal behavior such as diet and exercise, should be top priorities; and
Comprehensive health care coverage must be affordable to all purchasers: individuals, families, businesses, and government and the rising cost of West Virginia health care and coverage must be effectively contained; and
more than 60 organizations have come together as West Virginians' Campaign for a Healthy Future to push for significant health care reform; therefore, be it Resolved by the House of Delegates:
That the House of Delegates hereby recognizes the many individuals who have come together to support health care reform in West Virignia; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the House of Delegates extends its sincere appreciation to the members of West Virginians' Campaign for a Healthy Future for its many contributions to the State of West Virginia; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Clerk of the House of Delegates forward a certified copy of this resolution to the appropriate representatives of West Virginians' Campaign for a Healthy Future.
