Senator Jason Lewis Named to Regional Health Policy Committee

Senator Jason Lewis has been recently appointed by the Council of State Governments Eastern Regional Conference (CSG/ERC) to serve as a member of the CSG/ERC Health Committee.  The CSG/ERC’s purpose is to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information among the region’s policy makers, business leaders, and academic community.

As Senate Chair of the Massachusetts legislature’s Joint Committee on Public Health, Senator Lewis will be able to use this new role as a member of the CSG/ERC Health Committee to gain deeper insight into best practices on health policy, as well as share Massachusetts’ policy successes with counterparts in other states.

“This role will provide me with a unique opportunity to further develop and advocate for strategies to strengthen the quality and delivery of healthcare in the Commonwealth as well as to further contain healthcare costs,” said Senator Jason Lewis.  “These are issues that impact families across Massachusetts on a daily basis, and I am excited about this new avenue for exchanging public policy ideas.”

The Eastern Regional Conference includes the eleven northeastern states, from Maine to Maryland, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Canadian Provinces of Quebec, New Brunswick, Ontario, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.  The Council of State Governments was founded in 1933.
