NASTAD Policy Watch

The Policy Watch is a NASTAD newsletter that analyzes federal policy issues and the impact that they have on state health departments. The Policy Watch summarizes recent Congressional and Administration policy initiatives and actions. In addition, the Policy Watch provides updates on NASTAD’s Policy and Legislative Affairs work, including responses to Congressional and Administration proposals and coalition collaboration. The Policy Watch often addresses budget and appropriation measure, legislation addressing the Affordable Care Act, viral hepatitis and health equity.
