Nevada Call to Action: Oppose SB 201 which would prohibit vaping where smoking is currently banned

(04.01.15) You can also fill out an online opinion poll provided by the Nevada legislature to let them know that you oppose SB 201. (Please do this in addition to sending an email and attending the hearing.)


Nevada Senate Bill 201 would deceptively redefine “smoking” to include the use of “electronic smoking devices” for the purpose of including vaping in the state’s indoor clean air act.  

Please take action now by sending a message to your state senator and members of the committee.

SB 201 is scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, April 1st at 1:00 PM.
Room 2134 of the Legislative Building
401 S. Carson St.
Carson City, NV

Videoconferenced to:
Room 4412E Grant Sawyer State Office Building
555 E. Washington Ave.
Las Vegas, NV.

Please make plans to attend this hearing.  For talking points to use in developing your comments to the committee, please see here.  Even if you are not planning to testify, your attendance is important as it demonstrates the many people affected by and engaged in this issue. (As a sign of respect, we ask that you refrain from vaping in the building.)

(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.
