U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal Holds Emergency ‘Field Hearing’ in West Hartford

U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal

Sen. Richard Blumenthal convened his fourth emergency field hearing at West Hartford Town Hall Auditorium Thursday night to address the GOP’s plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act.


At 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 6 at West Hartford Town Hall, U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) convened his fourth emergency field hearing to receive public testimony as GOP leaders vow to continue efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and strip coverage from millions of Americans.

Attendees who are interested in testifying can RSVP Connecticut Communications Director Elizabeth Benton directly at [email protected] and should indicate if they want to be placed on the list to testify.

While a planned vote in the Senate on the GOP bill was delayed this week, Republican leaders are continuing to negotiate behind closed doors and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has vowed to hold a vote after the July 4th break.

With no opportunity for formal public input on the impact of the Affordable Care Act or the Senate Republican changes to the ACA, Blumenthal will give members of the public a chance to voice for the record how repeal of the Affordable Care Act and the Senate Republican plan will impact them and their families.

Senator Blumenthal has been sharing stories from his field hearings in Washington on the Senate floor.


The West Hartford Town Hall auditorium is located at 50 South Main St.
