Greetings! Danielle wanted me to share this great news from the Statehouse. The Shared-Use Agreements bill HB 1159, Liabilities for Use of School Facilities passed the House today on 3rd reading 91 – 3! We are very excited that this bill has momentum and is moving forward. We are one hurdle closer to opening doors to end obesity in Indiana. As a reminder, shared-use agreements allow schools to share their physical activity facilities at their discretion with the community for recreation and exercise opportunities. This would make it easier for more people to have access to a safe, friendly place to get active and would help us combat a leading cause of heart disease and stroke—obesity. Now the bill moves on to the Senate!
