Received this morning:

I thought you might like hearing that Education and Health was specifically mentioned in hearings for California Senate Bill 328, a proposed bill that sets limits on how early the school day can start in the state. The bill passed the state senate, and is now moving through the assembly. Yesterday was a vital vote in the assembly education committee. Assembly member Kevin Kiley, who had previously voted no on the bill, read directly from the guest editorial I wrote for you back in 2015 on the paradox of local control "Still Sleepless in America" and cited it as the reason he changed his vote to yes, and it passed the committee yesterday, July 10th, by just one vote.

"The data from the 2018/19 survey is still in heavy use here, the physical activity related findings were pivotal in changing the relevant strategy recently to target less active groups like girls towards the end of secondary school, and I’ve three fairly hefty jobs on the to-do list that will use the data with other sources to identify target schools for mental health and physical activity projects, and another looking at community safety. I call it the gift that keeps giving and that certainly seems to be the case!"
