Lupus and State Legislation: Spotlight on Ohio

In addition to the Lupus REACH Amendments (S. 1359/H.R. 1192), which is federal legislation, many states are working toward helping people with lupus at the state level! This month's featured state is Ohio.

Ohio State Representative Sandra Williams (D-District 11) has introduced 127 HB 360 -- creating a Lupus Education and Awareness Program. You can view the bill at http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/bills.cfm?ID=127_HB_360.

The LFA has 4 chapters in Ohio that have worked closely with State Representative Williams. If you live in Ohio, please contact your State Representatives and ask them to support 127 HB 360.

Great work Ohio!
