The Texas House of Representatives is considering legislation that would prevent local control over health issues, undoing 104 Texas cities' smoke-free ordinances. Please email your lawmaker to oppose this bill.
Please oppose HB 3899
Dear [Decision Maker],
Over the past two decades, 104 Texas cities have adopted comprehensive smoke-free indoor air ordinances, protecting the health of workers and allowing restaurant diners to enjoy their meals without being exposed to toxic secondhand smoke.Please ensure these communities continue to be protected from the harmful effects and addictive nature of tobacco by voting against HB 3899. We should not remove the authority of our city lawmakers to improve the health of their communities and to take positive steps forward to prevent youth from using addictive and deadly tobacco products.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
