Kate Brown to Greg Walden: Don't kill progress made under Affordable Care Act

Gov. Kate Brown met with U.S. Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., Monday afternoon at his Capitol Hill office to lobby the congressman on preserving health care benefits granted under the Affordable Care Act.

Walden told The Oregonian/OregonLive through his deputy chief of staff that his meeting with Brown was "friendly and frank" and touched on Oregon's transportation, infrastructure, rural economic development, forestry, and health care policies.
