Last night, Senator Rodriguez attended and participated in a forum on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act hosted by the Guam Medical Association.  The forum was attended by different stakeholders in the medical community, including insurance providers and other government leaders.  Senator Rodriguez stated, "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will affect Guam in many ways and I commend the Guam Medical Association for hosting this forum.  I thank them for inviting me to this informative event that will benefit our island and help us comply with and utilize Obamacare to the best of our ability."

Sen. Rodriguez, Chairman of the Committee on Health, issued a press release on the Affordable Care Act and opposition to the loopholes.  For the text of the press release, read more.

Today, Senator Rodriguez introduced Bill No. 488-31, which was passed by the body later in session.  Bill No. 488-31 gives the Guam Election Commission the authorization to reconfigure the Primary Election ballot to accomodate Independent candidates. "This bill is necessary to give all those running as either Democrats, Republicans or Independents an opportunity to appear on the ballot for the Primary Election.  I am pleased that my fellow senators supported this bill to help ensure the integrity of our democratic process," stated Senator Rodriguez.
