Remove language that would preempt Philadelphia from restricting the sale of tobacco

Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent I am asking you to remove language from the fiscal code amendment that would preempt Philadelphia from being able to restrict the sale of tobacco products.

Smoking remains the leading cause of death in Philadelphia. Over 3,500 Philadelphians are killed each year by tobacco products, making tobacco the top cause of preventable death in the city. Smoking rates in Philadelphia are highest among the ten largest U.S. cities and are highest in low-income neighborhoods.



Philadelphians should be able to determine their own tobacco policies. I hope I can count on you to remove language from the fiscal code amendment that would preempt Philadelphia from being able to restrict the sale of tobacco products.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
