Democratic Congressmen Bob Etheridge and David Price will meet with state employees this week to discuss health insurance reform.

Etheridge has scheduled an event in Lillington Wednesday, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Central Carolina Community College Multipurpose Building on N.C. Highway 421. Price will appear in Durham Thursday at 6:45 p.m. at the Miller Morgan Building on the campus of North Carolina Central University, 528 Nelson St.

Both forums are being hosted by State Employees Association of North Carolina. "State employees are concerned about health care," said Dana Cope, SEANC executive director. "Health insurance reform is ... vital to the well-being of all citizens."
