    Hi all. Does anyone know if CASAA plans to put out a call to action for HR 1136? We should all be asking our congress critters to cosponsor this legislation. It's too bad we don't hear much from CASAA lately.

    H.R.1136 - 115th Congress (2017-2018): To amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to provide for a certain effective date with respect to deemed tobacco products, to provide for the establishment of product standards for vapor product batteries, to provide for regulation of vapor products, and for other purposes.

    I'm not sure why this hasn't been announced here, but CASSA is asking everyone to email their Representatives about HR 1136. Please go to http://august8th.org .

    "SUPPORT COLE-BISHOP!

    Even if you've reached out to your lawmakers in the past, we need you to do it again. We have received word that the Cole-Bishop amendment is being seriously considered for inclusion in the FY2017 US budget.

    But, this is not a guarantee. There are strong forces working against anything that might be perceived as a "Republican rider" in the budget bill. Even though Cole-Bishop is a bipartisan effort in support of what should be a bipartisan issue, the effort to modernize the predicate date for vapor products has been stripped out of the budget before.

    We need your help to keep Cole-Bishop in the budget bill!

    Please take a moment to call your representative and senators:
    • Urge them to support the Cole-Bishop language in the 2017 US budget bill
    • If the predicate date for vapor products is not modernized, nearly all vapor products will be wiped off the market in 2018. Many businesses will start closing down this year.
    • The FDA will still have the authority to regulate vapor products and common sense regulations like no sales or marketing to minors will remain unchanged.
    • If you have time, briefly, tell your story about how vaping has helped you.

    When you're finished with your call, visit www.august8th.org and send an email.

    Please share this URL with everyone. EVERYONE!

    Thank you,
    CASAA Legislative Team"
