ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Your interest in health care reform has the Albany Chamber of Commerce expanding a planned town hall meeting with Senator Saxby Chambliss.

So many businesses planned to send representatives to the forum, the Chamber asked Chambliss' office to expand the number of attendees. They expect it to be standing room only. Chamber Director Catherine Glover says it's important everyone gets a chance to address their concerns.

"We had folks just calling in, emailing saying hey wait a minute we need this opportunity to be heard and this particular venue with Senator Chambliss is just that," said Catherine Glover, Albany Dougherty Chamber of Commerce President.

The event will be held August 11th at the Bridge House and is expected to last 45 minutes with the majority of the time spent allowing the community to ask questions. You must register with the Chamber to attend the event.
