2016 POWERHOUSE POLICYMAKER AWARDEES
Representative Stacey Abrams
Senator P.K. Martin
Please join us on September 28th as we recognize our 2016 Powerhouse Policymakers.
Representative Stacey Abrams, House Minority Leader
As House Minority Leader, Stacey Abrams leads her caucus in its efforts to enact legislation across a range of complex public policy issues. Despite a full plate, Leader Abrams always makes time for health care. Whether it is raising awareness with constituents about new health insurance opportunities available to them or tirelessly championing the need to close Georgia’s coverage gap by expanding Medicaid, leader Abrams has proven over and over again her determination to ensure every Georgian has a pathway to health coverage. For this steadfast commitment, we are honored to recognize her as a 2016 Powerhouse Policymaker.
Senator P.K. Martin, Senate Insurance Committee
Although only in his second legislative session, Sen. Martin is not one to back down from a challenge and isn’t afraid to take on complicated issues. Improving provider directory accuracy was one such topic. SB 302 is a groundbreaking piece of legislation that sets basic standards for directories and protections for consumers who rely on them. The bill has been recognized nationally as an important example of consumer protections. Sen. Martin has shown that he is someone who will fight for what he believes in and we are proud to recognize him as a 2016 Powerhouse Policymaker.
We hope you’ll join us on September 28th as we recognize Sen. Martin and Rep. Abrams! RSVP Here.
