CT - Take Action to oppose misguided Tobacco and Vapor 21 Laws

SB 290, which would prohibit the sale of vapor products to anyone under the age of 21*, is scheduled for a hearing on:

10:00 AM
Joint Committee on Public Health, Rm 1D

Please take a moment now and send a message to your lawmakers urging them to oppose this bill. Your email will also be copied to the committee to be submitted as testimony on this bill.

Take Action! - Send an Email

Please also make plans to attend this hearing. Even if you do not plan to speak, your presence is important as it demonstrates the large numbers of people affected by and engaged in this issue. Please dress appropriately and do not vape inside the capitol.

*For more background on Tobacco 21 laws, please see CASAA’s recent statement on this issue from our February 2016 newsletter here.

(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 INCLUDE YOUR PERSONAL STORY (just a few sentences) in the text of your email.
