Remove language that would preempt Philadelphia from restricting the sale of tobacco
Dear [Decision Maker],
As your constituent I am asking you to reach out to Appropriations Leadership and ask them 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 our city. Smoking rates in Philadelphia are highest among the ten largest U.S. cities and are highest in low-income neighborhoods.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
