Please Oppose Amendments to SB1400

Dear  [Decision Maker],

Every year over 2,400 Arizona kids become new daily smokers. As an Arizonan who supports strong public policies that reduce death and suffering from cancer, I'm writing to ask you to oppose anticipated amendments to Senate Bill 1400 Tobacco Retail Licensing in the Senate Commerce Committee.

Arizona legislators have a chance to demonstrate leadership and make history by joining a growing movement to combat the e-cigarette crisis and enact strong tobacco control laws to protect their constituents from the harmful effects of tobacco.

We cannot allow the tobacco industry to dictate how these addictive an deadly products are regulated. Local jurisdictions also need to retain the authority to be able to respond to this growing public health crisis.





The tobacco industry created this health problem; let's look to proven strategies from the health community to fix it.

I ask that you stand up for the health of Arizonans and oppose industry-friendly amendments to SB1400 in the Senate Commerce Committee.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
