The Texas House Public Health Committee is considering HB 749, which will raise the age of sale for tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, from 18 to 21. Add your voice to let lawmakers know you support this promising initiative.
Please Support Tobacco 21 - HB 749
Dear [Decision Maker],
As your constituent, I urge you to support HB 749, the bill to raise the age of sale for tobacco products from 18 to 21.With 95% of smokers having started before the age of 21, prohibiting stores from selling tobacco products to anyone under 21 will help prevent kids from getting their hands on dangerous tobacco products, including e-cigarettes.Each year, 28,000 Texans die due to tobacco-related illnesses. We must act now to stop the next generation from a lifetime of addiction.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
