The Oklahoma House and Senate Joint Health Care Committee recently launched a new website that allows citizens to follow the proceeding of the committee. Included on the website are video archives of the committee's various meetings and a schedule of future meetings. The committee was established to explore the mandates of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and the level of flexibility Oklahoma has a state. The goal of the committee is to preserve the private health care system in Oklahoma and to protect the rights of Oklahoma citizens, while exploring all of the state's options concerning federal law.
