Murkowski to hold health care forum

U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski is holding a forum next week on the impacts of the federal health care law.

Murkowski says good health care should be more accessible for Alaskans but she says this law isn’t the answer for providing that.

Her office cites a report, by an insurance company, that found the law would impose more than $340 million in new taxes on Alaskans. Her office says the full impacts of the law are still being calculated.

A release announcing the event says a doctor, real estate agent and small business owner have been invited to speak about the “economic drawbacks” of the law on their work.

The forum is scheduled for Wednesday in Anchorage.
