WASHINGTON, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Jim Douglas, Governor of Vermont and Chair of the National Governors Association will speak at a National Press Club luncheon on September 17, 2009 to discuss his yearlong NGA initiative, Rx for Health Reform: Affordable, Accessible, Accountable which looks at opportunities for states to contribute to the success of national health care reform.

Douglas announced on August 27 of this year, that he would not seek re-election as Governor in 2010.

As Governor, he has made health care reform a top priority in Vermont so its citizens have access to high-quality, affordable health care. Less than a year after taking office, the Governor launched The Blueprint for Health to transform Vermont's health care system and help all Vermonters lead healthier lives and reduce health care costs, and in 2006 signed a comprehensive package of health reforms to expand access to coverage, improve the quality and performance of the health care system and contain costs.

Douglas has served the people of Vermont for nearly 40 years, culminating with his election as Governor in 2002. His public service began by being elected to the Vermont House of Representatives just after graduating from Middlebury College in 1972.

The National Press Club luncheon will begin promptly at 12:30 p.m. and Douglas' remarks will begin just after 1:00 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session. Advance reservations should be made by contacting reservations at the National Press Club, (202) 662-7501 or reservations@press.org. Cost of lun
