According to Club Industry, the PHIT (Personal Health Investment Today) Act was “stymied from being passed by the U.S. Senate by the government shutdown on December 22, 2018. The legislation now awaits re-introduction in both the House and Senate in 2019.” The PHIT Act was passed by the U.S. House in July 2018. Since the government shutdown prevented a final U.S. Senate vote before the end of 2018, it must start all over again.
