    Well, the 2018 version of the Cole-Bishop amendment didn't make it into the final budget bill, which is probably a good thing. The 2019 version of the amendment no longer includes the predicate date change. It does direct the FDA to develop product standards for characterizing flavors and batteries. I hope the vaping community will be against Cole-Bishop this time.

    Altria lobbyists and Rep. Tom Cole betrayed VTA, AVA and others by excluding the predicate date for vapor products from the Cole-Bishop amendment to the 2019 Federal Spending Bill (that was approved last week by the US House Appropriations Cmte), and by requiring FDA to impose even more unwarranted tobacco regulations for vapor products (along with exempting premium cigars from the Deeming Rule, and by changing the 2007 predicate date for other cigars and pipe tobacco to 2014.

    During US House Approps Cmte markup session on Ag Approps bill, Reps. Nita Lowey (D-NY), Lucille Royball-Allard (D-CA), Chris Stewart (R-UT), Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) and Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) repeat fear mongering lies about vaping and teens
