Arlene Wohlgemuth, Executive Director of Texas Public Policy Foundation, will speak to the Bush Legacy Republican Women of Weatherford at their luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 18 at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center.

The Texas Public Policy Foundation is a 501(c) 3 non-profit, non-partisan research institute.

The Foundation’s stated mission is to promote and defend liberty, personal responsibility, and free enterprise in Texas and the nation by educating and affecting policymakers and the Texas public policy debate with academically sound research and outreach.

Funded by thousands of individuals, foundations, and corporations, the Foundation does not accept government funds or contributions to influence the outcomes of its research.

The public is demanding a different direction for their government, and the Texas Public Policy Foundation is providing the ideas that enable policymakers to chart that new course.

Arlene Wohlgemuth is Executive Director and director of the Foundation's Center for Health Care Policy. She served 10 years as a state representative for district 58.

During the 77th legislative session, she served as chairman of Appropriations Article II Subcommittee (Health and Human Services), vice-chairman of Calendars, CBO for Human Services, and member of the Select Committee for Health Care Expenditures. Wohlgemuth authored HB 2292, the sweeping reform of Health and Human Services which improved service delivery for the recipients, saving taxpayers more than $3.7B during its first five years. The reform consolidated 12 agencies into five and was the largest government reform bill ever passed in the state.

Wohlgemuth served as president of the Texas Conservative Coalition, chairman of the TCCRI Health and Human Services Task Force, and chairman of the TCCRI State Finance Task Force. She was twice named to Texas Monthly’s “Ten Best” List.

Reservations are required. The cost of the lunch and meeting is $15. For reservations, call Patsy Perkins at 817-441-6290. Visitors are welcome.
