    Representative Hoffman (LA - H-015 - R) began today's hearing on HB 271 by stating that now is not the time for this bill. The committee agreed to defer the bill and move it forward as a "study bill." Representative Hoffman underscored the need to study if/how vapor products are helping smokers quit smoking and to consider how other states are taxing these products.

    We will continue to monitor this bill as it moves through the process and encourage Louisiana advocates to contact their lawmakers to continue the dialogue about the benefits of vaping.

    Thank you and congratulations to everyone who participated by contacting their lawmakers on this issue.
