Increasing the amount of physical activity Americans get to recommended levels will require changes in community environments so that people can be more active as part of everyday life. Recent and pending federal legislation can provide the investments and other support necessary to make. These changes also positively address other major challenges we face as a nation, including climate change and the ailing economy.
