Call to Action: SUPPORT Pennsylvania Bill to Ban E-Cigarette Sales to Minors -- SB 1055

Dear DruidPriest,

Please see the below Call to Action regarding a Pennsylvania bill that is supported by CASAA. We need continued action by Pennsylvania vapers and vendors.

-----

[legislative tracking + full text] [web copy of this Call to Action]

If enacted, SB 1055 would: - Ban sales of "alternative nicotine products" (e-cigarettes and e-liquid) to minors - NOT tax these products - NOT define these products to be "tobacco products" under Pennsylvania law

SB 1055 has been sitting in the Pennsylvania Senate Judiciary Committee for 3+ months with no movement. We need PA vapers to encourage committee members to hold a hearing on this bill and begin to move it towards the Governor's desk. Additionally, if you might be able to testify when the bill has a hearing in Harrisburg, PA, please e-mail us at board@casaa.org.

The below legislators need to hear from Pennsylvania e-cigarette users who SUPPORT SB 1055.

Please call or write the members of the Pennsylvania Senate Judiciary Committee below

1. Inform them you SUPPORT SB 1055 because it would wisely ban sales of "alternative nicotine products" (e-cigarettes and e-liquid) to minors, but would NOT tax the product or define them as a "tobacco product."

2. Tell your story about how e-cigarettes have changed your life, but note that you still believe that minors should not be permitted to purchase the product.

3. Inform them that there is no rational reason to oppose SB 1055. E-cigarettes contain no tobacco and are helping hundreds of thousands quit smoking.

4. Direct them to the CASAA.org website for more information.
