Seven additional statewide community outreach meetings scheduled
Members of Gov. Bill Ritter's administration are scheduled to visit Steamboat Springs on Monday, continuing a statewide outreach tour to engage Coloradans in a discussion about health care reform.
The outreach meetings on health care reform began in Salida on Sept. 19. Meetings have also been held in Grand Junction and Durango.

"The best public policy is developed when all stakeholders are invited to the table to share their perspectives," Gov. Ritter said. "I look forward to learning even more about Coloradans' priorities for health care reform in our state."
