Statement from Governor Gregoire on Passage of Blue Ribbon Commission Bill

For Immediate Release: April 21, 2007

OLYMPIA - Governor Chris Gregoire today issued a statement regarding the passage of the Blue Ribbon Commission bill:

“Today the Legislature took a step toward higher quality, more affordable care for more Washingtonians. We cannot just keep throwing more money into a broken health care system – we actually need to fix that system. This means we need to pay for care that we know works, focus on prevention, better manage chronic illnesses, help patients get more involved in their health care and build a more efficient system. This bill does just that.”
