Rep. Brooks talks about health care, attends Colts practice

Says new law is fraught with unintended consequences



Brooks also toured the Madison County Community Health Center, which is under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, for the amount of paid medication the center's medical staff prescribes.

The congresswoman said she's been briefed about the matter, but said it didn't come up during her tour of the facility and meetings with staff on Monday.

"I haven't made any calls or inquires to the DEA, and I don't think that would be appropriate at this point," Brooks said. "I think we need to leave it to the process to work its course and to let the investigation be completed in as expeditious manner as possible."
