One Week From Today, America Heads to the Polls…

With only 7 days until the election, SFIA highly encourages you to get out and vote next Tuesday, November 6th!

As you consider your options, I wanted to share a little information (specific to the industry) with you:

  1. Every single member of Congress supported a key SFIA trade initiative, the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (MTB) in September, to provide $50 million in tariff relief on industry products.
  2. The industry also has many friends in Congress who understand the important role of physical activity in our society, with more than 150 members of the House and Senate cosponsoring the Personal Health Investment Today (PHIT) Act.

Below, I have included a list of all PHIT cosponsors and supporters (Representatives and Senators), and hopefully, yours are listed! We would be grateful if you kept these names in mind when heading to the polls on Tuesday, and allow your vote to reflect your dedication to a more active and healthier America!
