Rhode Island Call to Action: Oppose HB 5690 which would prohibit vaping in the same places smoking is banned

House Bill 5690 would ban the use of e-cigarettes in ANY indoor space in Rhode Island.  As written, there is no exemption for vapor retail shops.  HB 5690 is scheduled for hearing and/or consideration on WEDNESDAY, March 18th, 2015 at 5:30 PM in the House Committee on Health, Education, and Welfare, Room 101 - State House.

Please take action NOW to urge committee members to oppose this bill!

(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.
