Rep. Walden to Speak at Congressional Briefing


Drew Thies

Representative Greg Walden (R-OR) will be speaking to post-acute and long term care providers at the 2016 AHCA/NCAL Congressional Briefing on May 23rd.

Rep. Walden is in his 9th term of Congress and serves on the powerful Energy and Commerce Committee, which controls Medicaid, where he is chairman of the subcommittee on Communications and Technology.

Walden also serves as the current Chair of the National Republican Congressional Committee, the group tasked with growing and maintaining the Republican Majority in the House of Representatives. He is currently serving in his second term at the post, having grown the Republican lead in the House to its largest margin since 1931 during his stint in 2014.

Hailing from the large 2nd district in western Oregon, away from the more densely-populated coast Walden prioritizes issues affecting rural communities. The district is Oregon’s only Republican seat, and Walden enjoys good relations with most Democrats, despite the partisan nature of his job at the head of the NRCC.

The Congressional Briefing allows AHCA/NCAL members a chance to discuss critical PAC/LTC policies with key lawmakers like Rep. Walden.

Hotel rooms are booking quickly and overflow has been added. Registration is free and participants are encouraged to reserve their spots as soon as possible, as the conference is expected to have record attendance. Book before April 22 to reserve at the special group rate.
