New Chairman Provides Free Market Healthcare Solutions for the Future
WASHINGTON, DC (March 25, 2013) – The American Legislative Exchange Council today announced the appointment of the Honorable Judson Hill, GA (SD-32) as Chairman of the Task Force on Health and Human Services. This appointment is of particular importance as the Council enters its 40th year of focusing on economic issues and pro-growth policies that create opportunity for all Americans.
“Senator Hill brings extensive expertise in developing free market healthcare solutions for the people of Georgia,” said Ron Scheberle, Executive Director of the American Legislative Exchange Council. “His healthcare legislation has become a model for legislators around the country, and his leadership will be a tremendous asset to our organization.”
As a five-term State Senator, Hill has served as the chair of the Georgia Finance Committee and as a member of the Government Oversight and Judiciary Committees. As a member of the Georgia Health and Human Services Committee, he authored and successfully passed the nation’s first patient-centered, prevention-focused, free market reform legislation which made healthcare and insurance more affordable for Georgia’s working families.
“My strong commitment to the American Legislative Exchange Council is due to the nonprofit’s significant impact and the opportunities it creates for the exchange of ideas,” said Hill. “I’m honored to help lead the Health and Human Services Task Force and glad to have the opportunity to explore free market healthcare solutions with other legislators from across America.”
Hill served in the Reagan Administration as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia, and also in Washington, D.C. as a White House appointee at the United States Department of State/Agency for International Development. He is a graduate of Emory University and the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University.
