CA - Make a Call NOW to STOP SBX2-5!




Update - 04.22.16


After an unusual 43 days, SBX2-5 has finally made it to Governor Brown’s desk. The governor has 12 days to sign or veto the bill.


It is VITAL that California vapor consumers and their friends Call The Governor NOW and urge him to veto this bill.


Call Governor Brown TODAY: 916.445.2841
  • Urge Governor Brown to Veto SBX2-5.
  • Regulating low-risk, smoke-free vapor products like cigarettes sends the confusing and dangerously inaccurate message that they are equally hazardous.


Thank you,
CASAA Legislative Team

Update - 03.11.16


On Thursday, 03.10.16, the California Senate passed the entire package of anti-vaping bills. Now, this legislation is awaiting Governor Brown’s signature before they become law.

1st - Call the Governor at 916-445-2841

  • Regulating low-risk, smoke-free vapor products like cigarettes sends the confusing and dangerously inaccurate message that they are equally hazardous.

(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.

It might be a Saturday, but SBX2-5 will still be traveling to the senate on Monday -- on it’s way to the governor’s desk.

There are two things you can do this weekend that are vital to opposing this bill:
  • Contact your senator and urge them to oppose SBX2-5.
  • Share your story in CASAA’s Testimonials Project. We are specifically concentrating our effort to collect testimonials from California residents that we can present to your lawmakers later in the month.
