One of the best kept secrets of the Biden administration that shouldn’t be is his rural outreach program.
Each week I receive an email invitation from Will McIntee, associate director of public engagement. This one for today’s Zoom call is typical:
“On this week’s call we will provide updates on CMS’s proposed rule to implement the Rural Emergency Hospitals designation, as well as additional Bipartisan Infrastructure Law investments for rural high speed internet through USDA.”
The meetings have been high level, informative and relevant to our lives in rural Iowa. They are off the record and closed to press.
The full schedule of calls is available on the registration site. If you live in rural Iowa, I recommend you register to give one a try. Here are the details for today’s call:
