    Please see this post by CASAA President Julie Woessner about the new Campaigning Program invested in by CASAA. This is essentially a beta test, to be used by residents of New York to help with this particular CTA!

    This legislation would prohibit the indoor use of “electronic smoking devices” (aka e-cigarettes, despite the fact that they emit no smoke) in any area where actual smoking is prohibited. The bill could also regulate the placement of e-cigarettes in retail establishments that sell e-cigarettes with exemptions. The proposed legislation also restricts the sale of e-cigarettes to minors and imposes civil citations for any violations....

    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.

    *URGENT UPDATE*

    From CASAA: UPDATE 5-23-14: Having raced through the House, the bill is now in the Senate Finance Committee. It is IMPERATIVE that vapers and harm reduction advocates act IMMEDIATELY to express strong opposition to this sin tax. It is possible that it will pass out of committee (and on to the full senate) as early as Tuesday, May 27th, 2014.

    A new CQ Roll Call Campaign has been created to combat efforts by RJ Reynolds and Lorillard to impose a tax that will disproportionately impact their competition and that we, the consumers, will ultimately pay....

    (see CTA link below for details and suggested actions)


    UPDATE 6-1-14: The North Carolina Call to Action has been concluded. Legislators in North Carolina regrettably decided to burden North Carolinians with a new tax. Fortunately, the tax is relatively modest, but the precedent of any additional tax on these incredibly low-risk, potentially life-saving products is a step in the wrong direction.

    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).

    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)

    URGENT UPDATE: CASAA: Call to Action: Michigan Legislators are Considering an Excise Tax on E-Cigarettes

    Hearing scheduled: SB 1018 has been set for a hearing before the Senate Finance Committee on Wednesday, September 24, 2014 at 12:30 pm, Room 210, Farnum Building, 125 W. Allegan Street, Lansing, MI 48933 (Scott Jones, Committee Clerk, 373-5307).

    From CASAA:

    If you live in Michigan, you need to act now to let your legislators know that you oppose any tax on e-cigarettes above and beyond a general sales tax. We've made it as easy as possible by issuing a CQ Roll Call campaign to allow you to send an email to your elected officials. The email is FULLY EDITABLE by you, and we STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you (which sounds much nicer than "beg") to personalize your letter by sharing your story.

    We've also asked Michigan folks to CALL members of the Senate Finance Committee to express opposition. Names and phone numbers for members of the committee are included in the blog.

    A few minutes of your time can make a huge difference.

    URGENT - Madison, Wisconsin

    CASAA has issued a Call to Action on an ordinance that would ban e-cigarette use wherever smoking is prohibited. First reading was November 18, 2014, and the matter was referred to the Board of Parks Commissioners.

    The ordinance is expected to be considered at the next Board of Parks Commissioners meeting, December 10, 2014 at 6:30 P.M. at the Warner Park Community Recreation Center: 1625 Northport Dr, Madison, WI 53704

    The City of Madison is poised to deceptively define smoke-free e-cigarette use as "smoking." The justification written into the proposed law makes misleading, false and/or unproven scientific claims about "ultra-fine particles" and "volitile organic compounds."

    This ordinance will prohibit the use of e-cigarettes in all places where conventional smoking is prohibited. This includes businesses that wish to cater to e-cigarette consumers and retailers that need to allow customers to try samples. The same proposed ordinance also extends the prohibited areas to include Madison parks and beaches, which would also apply to vaping.


    Call to Action: CASAA: Call to Action! Madison Wisconsin E-cigarette Use Ban

    ECF Discussion in the CASAA forum: **************************************************************************************

    ECF Discussion in the Legislative forum: ********************************************************************************************************************************************

    UPDATE to include: The ordinance IS on the Parks Commissioners agenda for December 10th and public comments are strongly encouraged.
