Can you believe the American Heart Association’s annual Utah Heart on the Hill Lobby Day is just a few weeks away? Advocates from the across the state will gather at the Capitol on Friday February 6th to speak with our elected officials on issues that will help build a healthier Utah.
We will ask lawmakers to prioritize these three issue during the 2015 legislative session:
- Safe Routes to School – This program is designed to make it easier and safer to kids to walk and bike to school but it needs proper funding.
- Tobacco regulation – With the advent of new technology like e-cigarettes we want to make sure all products conform with existing laws.
- Availability of high quality healthcare for all Utahns - Finding a solution that will help improve access to healthcare is imperative for the state.
It should be an exciting day so we hope you can join us. No prior lobbying experience is required as training will be provided that day. If you’ve already registered, please don’t forget to invite your family and friends to join us by registering here.
