(Urgent) New York State Call to Action - Oppose Indoor Vaping Ban (SB 2202, AB 5955)

(URGENT) The New York Legislature has gone to extra innings and two bills that would severely limit where electronic cigarettes can be used are still in play. Even if you have previously taken action on this issue, it is critical that you join your fellow New Yorkers and take action again.

Please take action NOW to urge NY lawmakers to oppose both Assembly Bill 5955 and Senate Bill 2202.

Please also take a moment to call Senate President John Flanagan and politely, but firmly, urge him to oppose AB 5955.

  • Call Sen. Flanagan - 518-455-2071

Are you able to do more? After sending an email above to your reps in the NY State Assembly and Senator, it would be helpful if you also called their offices. You can easily find their contact information using this tool.

(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.
