Amodei hosts town hall meeting

Staff Reports

Among other issues affecting veterans, Congressman Mark Amodei will discuss the change to the TriCare Prime service area during a town hall meeting on Thursday.

Amodei will answer audience questions from 10 a.m.-noon in the Douglas County Administrative Building, 1616 Eighth Street in Minden.

Parking and access for the disabled is located in the rear of the building.

"I want to continue to meet with our veterans and listen to them regarding the issues and challenges they face," said Amodei. "In addition to thanking them for their service, this is an opportunity to familiarize them with the assistance my office can provide, as well as to continue to identify areas where I can help as a member of the House Appropriations Committee."

Representatives from the Veterans Association, Veterans Benefit Administration, and the Nevada Department of Veterans Services will also participate.

Amodei filed for re-election Wednesday at the Secretary of State's office as a Republican candidate for Nevada's 2nd District.

"It has been a busy 30 months advocating for the people of Nevada," said Amodei. "I took the lead on moving legislation through the U.S. House focused on our public lands, agriculture, mining, tourism and veterans, with an overall eye on creating jobs in Nevada across all sectors of our economy, while also supporting the creation of 76,000 acres of wilderness."

According to the Brookings Institution, Amodei is one of the most productive members of the U.S. House, introducing 16 pieces of legislation in the 113th Congress and passing four bills out of the House, which ties him for ninth out of 435 representatives.

"Not many other people in this job can say that they have stood for the voters almost every 12 months for a performance review," said Amodei. "I look forward to this next personnel session with my bosses – the people of Nevada's 2nd Congressional District."
