Iowa Senator Tom Harkin says he’ll hold a special hearing next month as the first Special Olympics National games open in July.
Harkin says he’ll conduct a field hearing of the Labor Health and Human Services appropriations subcommittee of which he is the ranking member. He says the hearing will focus on the “status and well being of people with intellectual disabilities.”
Harkin says he’s having several experts testify,as they’ll hear from Doctor Julie Gerberding, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Special Olympics National Games run from July 2nd to the 7th in Ames.
