Leg Update: MAMES Member And VGM Attend Rep. Jason Smith Event And HME News Poll

On June 9th, John Gallagher joined MAMES Member Patrick Naeger from Healthcare Equipment & Supply Co. at an event in Cape Girardeau, Missouri for Rep. Jason Smith. Rep. Smith is the ranking member of the House Budget Committee and serves on Ways and Means (subcommittees: Human Resources, Social Security). He represents the 8th district of Missouri, a large chunk of the state that is home to 45 HME (Home Medical Equipment) suppliers and many rural communities.

Naeger had this to say about the event:

“It was a great time; very one-on-one. We were able to be in an intimate setting with a member of congress who has frankly been so supportive of the industry and its issues and really understands it, Jason Smith’s new Chief of Staff, Matt Meyer, was fantastic. I’m grateful for the amount of time we were able to get with both of those gentlemen. Pretty blessed to have members in congress who I can also call my friends.”

Special thanks to Patrick Naeger who attended the event and established contact with a key legislator for rural communities.
