Larry Sherwood & Associates – Your Voice In Washington D.C.
In January, LSA representative Michael Welch RHU, REBC took client concerns to the Capital. During the three day conference he met with Oregon elected officials and presented ideas to lower the cost of medical insurance for Oregon businesses. Ideas that would help control future rate increases and help sustain our current employer based delivery system. Mike's observation: "It was interesting this year as it seems our elected officials were a little more open to our ideas. Whether the result of a new spirit of compromise in D.C. or the fact that it's an election year for many officials". In either case LSA will continue to participate so that our client's voice is heard.
