FGA’s Greatest Hits – April 2017

FGA’s leadership in advancing intelligent solutions for health care, welfare, and licensing reform continued in April with success at the state and federal level.

The federal debate on ObamaCare repeal has led to a conversation about the implementation of invisible risk-sharing programs. FGA took the lead, commissioning a study with the actuarial firm Milliman that received national attention and helped to spur the introduction of the Palmer-Schweikert Amendment to the AHCA.  Also this month, we offered the President three simple solutions he can do right now to help lift individuals from poverty and free them from government dependence.

We also continued blazing trails in the states as we work toward reducing job-killing regulations. Senior Research Fellow Jared Meyer had the opportunity to interview Arizona Governor Doug Ducey regarding his goals to eliminate restrictive licenses and open up markets for increased opportunities.
