Protect kids from tobacco in your budget

Dear [Decision Maker],

Tobacco is still the number one cause of cancer, so everything we can do to prevent kids from starting and help adults quit will help reduce the number of Wisconsinites from hearing those dreadful words, "you have cancer".

As your constituent and as an advocate for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), I hope you'll consider including the Kids Safety Package around tobacco in your budget priorities, which would:

1. Increase funding for the tobacco prevention and control program.
2. Tax ALL other tobacco products at the same rate.
3. License e-cigarette retailers tax e-cigarette products.

In addition, I ask that you continue funding the Wisconsin Well Woman Program that helps underinsured and uninsured women gain access to breast and cervical cancer screenings and treatment if needed.

I greatly appreciate your attention to these important cancer initiatives and look forward to seeing your budget proposal.
