Davis hosts health care summit tonight

U.S. Representative Artur Davis

U.S. Representative (and Democratic gubernatorial candidate) Artur Davis is staying busy here in Birmingham today. At 2 p.m. he’ll be taking part in a press conference at HUD’s Birmingham Field Office in part to watch HUD Secretary Shaun present a grant award to the City of Birmingham and “…highlight the city’s innovative plans to create jobs and help low-income families with its Recovery Act funds.”

Congressman Davis will then host a health care summit at the Alys Stephens Center beginning at 5:30 p.m. tonight. The folks over at Left in Alabama do a great job of describing the format and give you a glimpse of the opinions out there here in Alabama and nationwide while The Birmingham News gives us a look at Davis’ opinions about the issue.
