Rep. Dennis Moore, D-Kan., canceled a Tuesday morning Overland Park panel discussion on senior health issues because of fire code concerns, a spokeswoman for the congressman said.
Rebecca Black said more people registered to attend the event than could be accommodated in the reserved space at Cleveland Chiropractic College in Overland Park.
Black said staff members were working to reschedule the event, and she said they had contact information for the people who had registered.
She also said that in the last week staff members had tried to notify people who had registered to attend the event about the change.
Congress is in the final week of its August recess, and several members have spent the last month meeting with constituents on health care issues. Moore announced earlier in August that his office received two threats and that he would meet only with smaller groups instead of having large town hall-style meetings.
