Chafee appoints Roberts to health care panel

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Lieutenant Governor Elizabeth Roberts will lead a panel for Governor-elect Lincoln Chafee on implementing the federal health care reform plan.

Chafee says Roberts is a natural choice for the role because of her knowledge of healthcare.

"This is a great chance to work together," Chafee says. "She has already spent four years working on this very, very important subject, so I look forward to working together again. That's the key to success."

Chafee announced the panel yesterday.
