  State Senator Sal DiDomenico has been chosen by The Council of State Governments (CSG) to serve on its 2021-22 Healthy States National Task Force. This is “an initiative to assist states with a variety of health and well-being issues, all of which have been intensified by the pandemic,” according to CSG’s website. This bipartisan group of state leaders is tasked with providing resources and recommendations for state governments on how to best address current state challenges. Members include State Senators, State Representatives, Lieutenant Governors, Secretaries of State and Judges from throughout the United States and U.S. Territories. During a two-year process, the Healthy States National Task Force will focus on four key policy areas to provide states with a holistic policy strategy for their shared challenges.

  “It’s an honor to be chosen to serve on this CSG National Task Force that will gather ideas and research to provide steps for states to come out of the pandemic and improve the overall health of our nation,” said DiDomenico. “This is a great opportunity to serve with colleagues from throughout the United States and bring the proven models we have used in Massachusetts to the national stage. It is great to share our successes with other parts of the country.”

  The Healthy States National Task Force will convene throughout 2021 and 2022 to discuss and deliberate about the opportunities and policy practices that can collectively improve state health. DiDomenico has also been appointed to the Civic Health Subcommittee on the Task Force, which will explore policies that build strong communities and support meaningful civic engagement where states have the greatest nexus of influence, such as voting, civic education and participation and increasing public trust and interface with government. The full task force will also be meeting in Santa Fe, New Mexico, this fall during CSG’s national meeting.

  Founded in 1933, The Council of State Governments is the nation’s largest nonpartisan organization serving every branch of elected office.
