HENDERSON, Colo. – U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman will host a town hall meeting Tuesday evening at Prairie View High School in Henderson—in Denver’s northeast suburbs.

The town hall meeting comes amid confusion and shake-ups in Washington—particularly in the White House.

Coffman has held several town halls this year amid pushes to fix the Affordable Care Act, and Tuesday’s town hall comes as he tries to push for bipartisan changes to the health-care law. His most-recent town hall in the Denver area was in early April.

Coffman voted against the House’s version of the Republican effort to repeal and replace the ACA, the American Health Care Act, in early May, and his since been pressing for bipartisan solutions as the Senate GOP push fell apart.

He said Monday he and a bipartisan caucus of congressmen and women had put together a new proposed solution to stabilizing insurance markets in each state.

Coffman’s Tuesday town hall is free and open to constituents of Colorado’s 6th Congressional District, but tickets to the event were sold out Monday.

People who have tickets will have to bring a photo ID to be cross-checked. Each person in attendance will be given a raffle ticket, which will be drawn at random to determine who will ask questions.

For those not able to attend, Coffman plans to live stream the event on his Facebook page.

The town hall meting starts at 6 p.m. at Prairie View High School in Henderson, and is scheduled to last for an hour.
