We Are Making the Commonwealth Heart Healthier and Stroke Free!

by Allyson P. on Tuesday, May 28, 2013

The Senate successfully completed their budget in two days last week; this takes us one step closer to finishing this long budget process. Thanks to our advocates we were able to have some success! Although it was a tough budget year we were able to secure funding for some of our key priorities. The Senate funded an AED Trust Fund at $500,000 and created a Comprehensive Stroke System of Care so we can effectively treat stroke in the Commonwealth. This was two huge wins! When the House took up their budget we were able to secure minimum packaging requirement for cheap, kid-friendly cigars. We will fight to keep these key programs as the budget process continues!
