Senator Kohl applauds some inclusions in health care bill
The health care overhaul includes a couple of pet projects of U.S. Senator Herb Kohl of Wisconsin.
Kohl tells WCLO's Stan Milam Show, in Washington this week, the health care bill includes regulations he's been working on for years. Among them, requiring background checks for nursing home employees. He says rating systems of nursing homes will also be available.
Other issues topping the Democrat's agenda are jobs and economic development, which he expresses a keen awareness of Janesvile's situation, and a desire to help find a new tenant for the idle General Motors plant.
