About the Committee

The Midwestern Legislative Conference Health & Human Services Committee provides legislators with a forum to exchange information and ideas on a range of critical policy issues — from health care and wellness, to services for the poor and disabled. Legislators from the MLC's 11 member states and four Canadian provinces serve on the committee. If you have questions about the committee, please contact Jon Davis, CSG Midwest staff liaison to the committee.
