McKeon to hold health care meeting

U.S. Congressman Howard P. "Buck" McKeon will hold a town hall meeting on federal health care reform this morning at College of the Canyons.

The setting will be the college's main gymnasium.

McKeon has expressed his views on health care reform to news media and in public forums, including a telephonic conference with constituents last month.

Earlier this month, the Republican congressman voiced his opposition to a public option in any plan - a major component in President Barack Obama's proposals.

McKeon also said any talk about health care would be pointless if it didn't address tort reform - which includes limiting the amount patients can claim in malpractice lawsuits against doctors.

"We're talking about ripping out the roots of the best health care system in the world for something we are unsure of," McKeon told The Signal earlier this month.

The public forum is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. today.

COC's main gym is located at 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road in Valencia. Officials said those interested in attending should park in lots 5, 6, 7 and 8. A sign language interpreter will be on hand.
