U.S. Rep. Scott Perry, R-Dillsburg, will host his second public town hall of the year on Saturday, according to a news release from his office.

The town hall, scheduled for 9-10:30 a.m., will be held in the gym at Cumberland Valley High School, 6746 Carlisle Pike in Mechanicsburg.

As was the case for his March town hall in Red Lion, Perry's office will require RSVPs from  those planning to attend. RSVPs can be made at www.perry.house.gov/town-hall/.

Those hoping to attend must enter their ZIP codes to ensure they live in Perry's district. Valid photo IDs are required for those in  attendance, except for children 16 and younger, according to the release.

Those with limited internet access can  RSVP by contacting Perry's office at 202-225-5836. The town hall also will  be livestreamed through Perry's Facebook page.

Perry can expect to receive numerous questions about his support for the American Health Care Act, also known as "Trumpcare," which narrowly passed the House in early May.

During his previous town hall, Perry told constituents he would vote against the health care reform bill as it was written at the time, but he ended up voting for it after several amendments were added.

“The American Health Care Act goes to extensive lengths to protect those with pre-existing conditions, something that I support," Perry said in a statement following his vote. "We need to get the costs of health care down, get government bureaucrats and insurance companies out from in between patients and doctors and protect the most vulnerable; this bill achieves these goals."

Doors will open at 8:15 a.m. Saturday for the town hall, and attendees are advised to enter the campus along Dapp Road, where signs will direct drivers toward the parking area.

Cumberland Valley High School previously hosted now-President Donald Trump for a campaign rally last August. Perry spoke at that rally in support of Trump.
