Pennsylvania Advocacy Day on February 3rd was ultimately cancelled when Mother Nature dropped 8 inches of snow on the state Capitol. However, a small but mighty group of advocates made it into Harrisburg, even when the Capitol Complex closed. We did find our smoke free champion for House Bill 1485, Representative Mario Scavello, on the job and he posed for a quick photo.
Our top policy priorities for 2014 are to protect all Pennsylvanians from the dangers of secondhand smoke (House Bill 1485) and ensure that all newborn babies in Pennsylvania are screened for Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) using pulse oximetry (House Bill 1420). Please help us as we continue our vital work and raise your voice in support of these life-saving policies.
