State Senator Seward to Run Insurance Committee

State Senator James Seward, whose district includes Dryden, will run the Senate insurance committee. The committee will influence how New York implements the federal health care overhaul.

Seward swill also evaluate Gov. Andrew Cuomo's plan to merge the state insurance and banking departments.  Seward said:

“Much of the work of actually implementing the health care reform will be at the state level.  That will dominate much of our attention, and that is a 2011 issue. It can’t wait until the last minute."


Being in charge of implementing Obamacare for New York state will sure keep Jim busy. Frankly, I look forward to the day that he will no longer have that job because it's been repealed and or changed.
