Sen. Franken to hold first constituent meetings on health care reform

ST. PAUL - Sen. Al Franken holds his first meetings in the Twin Cities that focus on health care reform.

The first meeting Wednesday brings together faith leaders, union representatives, health and welfare groups and consumer advocates to talk about what they want for Minnesota as the federal government grapples with policy changes.

The second discussion Wednesday focuses on women's health issues, with an array of women's groups on the agenda.

Franken is a Democrat who took office seven weeks ago after a lengthy unresolved election.
