2017 Legislative Priorities

  • Support efforts to reduce health inequities
  • Support public health funding – including increasing local public health grant funds and maintaining Statewide Health Improvement Partnership funding
  • Support gun violence prevention efforts
  • Support environmental health efforts to ensure healthy families, clean water, clean air, and a healthy climate

The Policy & Advocacy committee chose priorities based on current engagement in coalitions or other external groups, and political feasibility.

Also note that the legislative priorities are a guide for the committee, and not meant to preclude action taken in support of other policies.
