NHS Reality Check students attend 2nd Legislative Day NHS Reality Check Students Attend 2nd Legislative Day

NHS Reality Check students attended the 2nd Legislative Day in the Empire State Plaza’s Capitol Building and Concourse. At the Capitol, Steven King, Morgan Burdick, Kristina Lamphere and Madison Lamphere got a unique and personal opportunity to speak, meet and educate lawmakers on the value of New York State Tobacco Control Programs and the ever-increasing support for tobacco-control policies at the local level.

The Reality Check members were extremely honored and fortunate enough to meet again with Assemblymen Cliff Crouch & Gary Finch, Senator Seward and Senator Fred Akshar. For the second year, NHS RC students were able to give their local representatives an update about what they have been working on in their NHS RC program. This year our four NHS students and their RC peers asked for an additional 1 million dollars of state funding to support tobacco control.
