Recognizing the unique role that states play in promoting health and preventing disease, CDC monitors state legislative and regulatory action that supports healthy eating and active living. This data is housed and maintained by CDC in the online database of State Legislative and Regulatory Action to Prevent Obesity and Improve Nutrition and Physical Activity (SLRA). The SLRA is available to public health practitioners, opinion leaders, policymakers, and researchers in the field, and provides access to information on state legislation that supports obesity prevention and organizes this information based on unique searchable meta-data (e.g. state, setting, year, policy topic, health category).
