WASHINGTON—Congressman Bill Owens will hold a telephone town hall today to answer questions about the Affordable Care Act. A representative from New York State of Health, New York’s state-run health insurance marketplace, will join him to answer questions related to the state’s rollout of the Affordable Care Act. The event will occur from 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Thursday evening.
