CARSON CITY – U.S. Sen. Harry Reid will host a telephonic town hall meeting this week to discuss health care reform.
The Democratic Senate Majority Leader has scheduled the meeting Friday, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.
In a written release, his office says about 50,000 Nevadans will be invited to participate. Anyone interested in taking part can register online through the senator’s Web site, http://www.reid.senate.gov.
