State legislatures recently got underway across the country and many will be considering some critical public health law measures, according to a recent blog post from the Network for Public Health Law.

  • A bill in Kentucky which could restrict the work of local boards of health.
  • A law in Ohio that would require health departments to enter into agreements for shared services and to become accredited.
