Subject: House Bill 169 - House Education Standing Committee Meeting this Afternoon
Date: Thu Mar 06 21:44:16 MST 2014

Dear Representatives,


I am concerned that HB169 willtotally eliminate the ability of the UDOH, HHS, or other state agencies to collect data related to the health and safety of students in Utah schools. And, it may prevent research projects dealing with prevention of risks to youth as well.  Please carefully consider your action on this bill as it may impact the prevention and educational efforts of many great entities.


Thanks for your consideration,

Janet Brooks
Safe Kids Utah, Executive Board Member
