Coats seeks input on federal reach

Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., is asking Hoosier to share their stories on how they are being affected by the Affordable Care Act, taxes and regulations.

He has started his “Indiana Input” campaign at www.coats.senate.gov/indianainput.

“I believe there are three problem areas keeping America from getting back on track toward growth and prosperity: the costly health care law, the impact of federal regulations on businesses and our burdensome tax system,” Coats said in a statement. “Whether I am visiting with Hoosiers across the state or preparing for votes and hearings at the Capitol, I want to continue to take the ‘Indiana Input’ back to Washington.”
