(Washington D.C.)  Congresswoman Cathy McMorris (WA-05) issued the following statement in response to President Bush’s State of the Union address:

“The President delivered an important message tonight. I was pleased to hear him address issues that are especially important to Eastern Washington, such as health information technology, energy independence, and the importance of spending tax payer dollars wisely. In Spokane, Inland Northwest Heath Services has developed a national model for the use of electronic medical records and health information technology has huge potential to save money within our health care system. It is important that we continue to look for ways to reduce our independence on foreign oil through conservation and explore new technologies, such as biodiesel. Finally, we must practice fiscal responsibility and eliminate government waste.”
