HELP FOR A BLURRY-EYED CONGRESS: PUBLISHER COMMERCE CLEARING HOUSE DELIVERS SUMMARY OF HEALTH CARE REFORM ACT TO CONGRESSIONAL LEADERSHIP

 RIVERWOODS, Ill., Nov. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- No one said health care reform would be easy to understand, especially when it requires 1,342 pages to describe it to Congress and the American public. Health care law publisher Commerce Clearing House, which has been explaining legislation of all types for over 80 years, knows these things. The company helped ease lawmakers' burdens this today by delivering copies of its 136-page CCH Summary of President Clinton's Health Security Act to key Congressional leaders.
 The company was one of the first to publish Clinton's Health Security Act in its entirety, publishing and mailing the tome within 48 hours of its October release by the White House.
 However, in great demand by those trying to wade through the huge document is the company's helpful CCH Summary of the Health Security Act. As a courtesy to those responsible for analyzing and legislating the president's plan, CCH Washington, D.C. staff hand-delivered copies of its summary today to 50 representatives and senators heavily involved in health care reform.
 "As expected, the president's plan is extremely complex," said Art Weinstein, CCH managing editor, health care, whose staff took on the task of breaking down the act to summarize and explain it. "Not many people can get their arms around it all at once. The CCH Summary is very valuable to anyone dealing with health care reform; it provides a starting point for thorough research and analysis."
 Demand for CCH books relating to the president's plan has been brisk, according to the company, which offers the full text of the Health Security Act for $20, compared to the Government Printing Office's $45 version.
 CCH published approximately 25,000 copies of the summary, which is available for $17.50, by calling toll-free 800-248-3248.
 Riverwoods-based CCH is a leading publisher of health care, tax, business and human resources law. The company publishes more than 300 print and electronic publications each year.
