We salute the Senate for voting this week by unanimous consent to establish a foundation for the President’s Council on Physical Fitness, Sports and Nutrition.  The National Foundation on Physical Fitness and Sports Establishment Act would allow private funds to supplement government appropriations for the council.

The Senate's action will contribute to Americans’ fitness and well-being and we encourage the House to follow suit.  We support Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., and Rep. John Sarbanes, D-Md., key sponsors of the bill, and encourage other members to cosponsor it as well.
