    Default Illinois

    We have been informed that it is possible that legislation banning e-cigarette use wherever smoking is prohibited may be introduced in the Senate Executive Committee May 28th, 2014. While we do not know if this will indeed happen, we are alerting our members because elected officials are increasingly willing to introduce legislation with little or no notice in an effort to eliminate any honest discussion or opposition.
    Please note that this campaign is targeted to Illinois vapers who have a senator on the Illinois Senate Executive Committee. If you live in Illinois, please input your personal information to see if your senator is on the committee and, if so, send an email as directed.

    Call to Action (via CQ Campaign):

    URGENT UPDATE 6-16-14: On Wednesday June 18th at 2 PM, the San Diego City Councilís Public Safety and Livable Neighborhoods Committee will hold a critical public hearing on a proposed ordinance that would senselessly ban the use of smoke-free e-cigarettes everywhere that smoking is banned.

    To stop these ordinances, please (1) attend and testify at the June 18th hearing in San Diego on the 12th Floor of City Hall (202 C Street) and/or (2) call or e-mail the City Council members to express your opposition.

    Default New Jersey - URGENT UPDATE 6/25/14

    URGENT UPDATE 6/25/14:

    Assembly Bill 1080 (A1080) would fine vapers $250 to $1000 for using their e-cigarette anywhere on a beach or public park. This bill has passed the Assembly and must now move through the Senate. It is has passed the NJ General Assembly and is now in the Senate. Link to bill information.

    CASAA has implemented a new CQ Roll Call campaign for New Jersey to help you express opposition to A1080.

    The email is completely editable by you, and we encourage you to make changes to the email to reflect your views and to share your story. If you plan to substantially edit the email, you may wish to copy the text into a word processing program and make the edits there, then copy and paste back into the CQ Roll Call email. We have had two reports over the last several months that CQ Roll Call might "reset" when you keep the window open for a long time or when you open a separate browser window, causing you to lose any unique text you've added (and reverting back to the original).

    UPDATE 6/25/14! NJ Gov. Chris Christie proposes taxing e-cigs at rate equal to $2.70/pack cigarette tax + other issues

    If you have a New Jersey address, please take five minutes of your time to participate and share your views with your elected officials.


    UPDATED 5/16/14

    The Senate Committee on Health has scheduled a hearing for this coming MONDAY, May 19th at 1:00 PM for SB 1867 (outrageous 75% wholesale tax on all e-cigarette liquids, devices, components, etc.) and AB 1080 (banning e-cigarette use on parks and beaches). The hearing will take place in Committee Room 1 on the 1st Floor of the State House Annex (125 W. State St in Trenton, NJ 08608). There is free parking behind the State House. It is CRITICAL that advocates attend this hearing and speak out against the negative effects of a tax of this sort as well as express opposition to banning smoke-free e-cigarette use in parks and beaches.

    Default Massachusetts - Updated

    URGENT UPDATE for Massachusetts residents: HB 3726 is still in play and has now progressed to the House Ways and Means Committee after receiving a favorable recommendation from the House Committee on Health Care Financing.

    In addition to banning sales to minors (which CASAA supports), HB 3726 also (1) bans e-cigarette use wherever smoking is prohibited and (2) defines e-cigarettes as a "tobacco product," lumping it in with combustible cigarettes for state law purposes.

    CASAA has created a CQ Roll Call Campaign for Massachusetts residents to help you express opposition to HB 3726. More details can be found in the updated Massachusetts Call to Action and the CQRC campaign for Massachusetts.

    Call to Action:
    CASAA: Call to Action! Massachusetts E-Cigarette Usage Ban -- HB 3726 (formerly HB 3639) (UPDATED 7/30/14)

    Default Call to Action: FDA Comments Survey

    Because the FDA comment site may not post all of your comments and they are particularly difficult to track, we are also doing a survey of the vaping community to collect and officially record the comments made to the FDA. Depending upon participation, this should give CASAA a way to report the true involvement of the community to the media and Congress, along with a way to share your comments directly with them, without the comments submitted by the opposition and the cigar supporters. It will also give CASAA statistics on ways to better reach the vaping community for future actions. This will be compelling information that will help us continue our fight.
