Talking points:
-Iowa is currently ranked in the bottom half of states for BOTH mental health and maternity service access.

-Reforming CON will reduce healthcare costs.

-CON reform will help improve access to mental health and maternity services.

-Economists have found that on a national level 10.5% of the increase in per capita healthcare spending was associated with having stringent CON laws.

-CON laws have created a monopoly in healthcare and have eliminated competition that would allow Iowans to have a choice in their healthcare and help drive down the costs associated with it.
