(Update - 05.22.15)
SB 97 has been sent to Governor Abbott and is currently awaiting his signature. As stated in our previous update, if signed into law, SB 97 will create barriers to access for adult consumers and implement troubling personal data collection requirements. Moreover, there are sections of this bill that support the notion that, in general, the use of vapor products should be discouraged.
Please take action now by sending a message to Governor Abbott urging him to veto this bill and pressure the legislature to pass a clean bill prohibiting sales to minors.

(Writing Tip #1) If you have a lot to say, please craft your email in a separate word doc and then copy/paste it into the field provided. If you take too long, they system will time out and you will lose your work.
(Writing Tip #2) Although we've provided a prewritten email with compelling talking points, we would strongly encourage you to edit the email because personalized communications to legislators are far more persuasive than form letters. At a minimum, PLEASE INSERT YOUR PERSONAL STORY (just a few sentences) in the text of your email.
