May of each year is hereby established as “Injury Prevention Month”.

1. The Governor shall annually issue a proclamation encouraging the widespread dissemination of injury prevention information; and
2. All state agencies, businesses, and interested organizations should take the opportunity to provide their employees and members with injury prevention information during Injury Prevention Month.
