Rep. Dan Boren, D-Muskogee, is scheduled to talk about colorectal cancer on the House floor today. Looks now like it will be about 3:30 p.m. (central), but I’ll update you. Boren has authored legislation to require insurance companies to cover the costs of screening for the cancer, from which Boren’s mother, Janna, died ten years ago. Boren’s speech will be on C-SPAN.
Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Tulsa, is expected to be speaking about the same time today on the Senate floor, C-SPAN 2, regarding Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner.
