Once you have selected a bill that has been proposed in response to a perceived public health problem, write a 5-7 pages paper outlining specifics of the bill. Be sure to include the following:
Overview of the health problem: An overview of the public health problem to be addressed by the legislation. Discuss the problem and the number of people affected by it and by the proposed bill.
Severity of the health problem: Discuss the research behind the health problem. What would realistically happen if the bill is not implemented?
Overview of the bill: Please be sure to identify the name, number and author of the bill. You should include an overview of the proposed bill in terms of its specific provisions. Also be sure to state the current status of the bill. Has it been passed by the house? Is it in review?
Promises/Expected Outcomes: Identify the promoters and supporters of the bill (i.e. stakeholders). Describe what the supporters of the bill believe the bill will accomplish. What specific health outcomes the promoters claim will occur if the bill is passed? Discuss who is for the bill, and why?

You may cite consequences suggested by others, or you can list the consequences you believe will result from the passage of the bill.
