Subject: National Violent Death Reporting System

I am pleased to inform you that the Washington State Department of Health has been selected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for participation in the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS). NVDRS will provide a clearer understanding of the circumstances surrounding violent deaths in Washington State. This data will help guide local decisions about violence prevention efforts and will help track progress over time. More information about NVDRS can be found on CDC’s website: http://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/nvdrs/index.html.

I’d like to thank those of you who assisted with this application, our success both with the application and the grant work was and will be truly dependent on you as our partners.

The grant funding will begin on September 1st. Our first step will be to acquire staff to assist with this work. In late fall, DOH will begin pulling together a steering committee to assist us with this work. Data collection will begin in 2015 in a sub-set of counties. Over the next few years more and more counties will be included.

Thank you again for your support, and if needed we will be in touch regarding your participation in this project with us over the next couple of months.

Sincerely,
Steven Saxe, FACHE

THE 2013-2014 FREEDOM AGENDA IS NOW OFFI

THE 2013-2014 FREEDOM AGENDA IS NOW OFFICIALLY THE MOST SUCCESSFUL SLATE OF CONSERVATIVE BILLS IN TWO DECADES! THANK YOU, TOGETHER WE DID IT!
The idea of building coalitions around issues regardless of party is winning. With over 50 Democrat co-sponsors of our bills we have proven that you can be both Right and Effective promoting constitutional principles of lower taxes, less government, and more freedom.
THE FINAL SCORECARD:
Out of 65 Bills:
42 Hearings
32 Voted Out of House/Senate
25 National News Stories
12 Signed Into Law without Veto
2 Resolutions Passed
2 Rule Changes
Stopped Gun Control
Stopped Gas Increase 7 Times
Delayed Implementation of Part of Common Core
While the Drone Bill was vetoed the Governor did institute a moratorium on their use in Washington.

Together we are winning and changing the Face of Olympia by going on the offense for Freedom and Liberty.

EFFECTIVE, PRINCIPLED, PROVEN, CONSERVATIVE LEADERSHIP WINS.

In Freedom,

Matt
