Session 5A - Next Steps in Healthcare Reform
Efforts in 2017 to repeal and replace Obamacare came up short.  Where do we go from here?  We will discuss an emerging consensus plan - created by conservatives around the country - to increase patient choices and stop exploding costs, starting by returning to repeal and replacing Obamacare as a down payment to larger reforms.

Session 5B - Advancing School Safety: Lessons from Parkland
There was nearly 20 years between the Columbine massacre on April 20, 1999, and the school shooting in Parkland, Florida - yet, as a nation, we still seem to be searching for solutions.  We know what does - and doesn't - work to improve school safety.  Rather than allow another tragedy to occur, it is time to set aside political agendas and get serious about school safety.
