Keystone, Colo. (AP) - Ski workers are getting a say in the nation's health care overhaul.

Representative Jared Polis heads to Keystone Wednesday for a forum with ski-industry employees.

The Democrat from Boulder is holding meetings across his district to whip up support for a sweeping health care reform bill looming when Congress returns to work next month.

All members of the Colorado delegation are talking health care during the August recess. Democratic Senator Michael Bennet toured a hospital Monday, and two Denver-area Democratic House Members are touring a Denver clinic Thursday.

Republicans are talking health care, too.

Colorado's two Republicans are planning town halls of their own as both sides prepare for a health care showdown in Washington this fall.
