Now Available! IHRSA’s 2014 End of Session Report

At the conclusion of each annual legislative session, IHRSA releases the End of Session Report that highlights efforts by industry leaders, IHRSA’s advocacy team, and IHRSA’s lobbyists to grow, promote, and protect the health club industry while it helps Americans live healthier, happier, and more active lifestyles.

Last year, IHRSA analyzed and tracked 153 pieces of legislation in the 50 states and the District of Columbia, 108 of which directly impacted health clubs and 13 that posed a direct threat to club profitability.

The report provides a comprehensive state-by-state summary of legislative activity that could have had a significant impact on the industry during 2014. This information acts as a useful resource for monitoring legislative issues that have recently affected your state and assists with constructing a strategy focused on how to combat these same issues, should they resurface in the coming year.

We encourage all IHRSA members to download the report and learn about the issues that impact your business and your industry, and we support members who actively practice healthy habits.

Now that you've seen what IHRSA did on behalf of the industry in 2014, see what we're working on for 2015 and beyond! The 2015 Legislative Threat Report shows how IHRSA is prepared to protect the industry by preventing lawmakers from introducing bad bills and being more effective at defeating the ones that do materialize.
