State Senator Jane Nelson has filed multiple bill that will improve physical education in Texas schools--all of which are heavily supported by the American Heart Association.

"Far too many of our youth are leading super-sized, sedentary lifestyles which put their lives in danger," Nelson said in a statement. "Unless we take action, an entire generation of Texans will live shorter lives than their parents."

Nelson, a former school teacher, has been a long time supporter of increased physical education in schools.
