Support A-3338 to save lives from smoking
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing to support a bill (A-3338) that would dedicate 1% of the state's tobacco tax to fund a program to prevent kids from smoking and help adults quit.This year alone in New Jersey, 5,400 children will become new daily smokers. The first step toward a deadly, life-long addiction.
Investing in smoking prevention and cessation will mean less tobacco related disease and reduced health care expenses for New Jersey. Last year alone, smoking cost our state over $4 billion in direct health care costs, including $1.17 billion in Medicaid.Speaker Prieto, I urge you to post A-3338 for a vote at the November 21st Assembly Voting Session.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
