A quick snapshot turns up plenty of activity on the national level: the recently proposed HR 5209 (CHOICES) to fight obesity (page 21): the White House Interagency Task Force on Childhood Obesity: the National Physical Activity Plan, which includes the section Parks, Recreation, Fitness and Sports; the Administration's first revision in more than a century of the country's policies on land conservation and recreation called America's Great Outdoors; First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move Campaign; the commitment of a Senate sponsor for a companion bill to the Urban Revitalization and Livable Communities Act that will complement the House version of URLC; the Centers for Disease Control's ACHIEVE program (page 52), and a joint-declaration of a Children's Outdoor Bill of Rights signed by the NRPA, the National Park Service, and the directors of state parks.
