Vote Yes On LB 840

Dear [Decision Maker],

As an American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network volunteer, I'm asking that you support LB 840, which adds e-cigarette products to Nebraska's Clean Indoor Air Act. This legislation is currently on Select File.

E-cigarette aerosol is not harmless. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, e-cigarette aerosol can contain harmful and potentially harmful substances including: nicotine; ultrafine particles; flavoring such as diacetyl, a chemical linked to a serious lung disease; cancer-causing chemicals; volatile organic compounds; and heavy metals such as nickel, tin, and lead. Because of these identified risks, the Surgeon General has recommended that states add e-cigarette products to clean indoor air laws.



When it comes to the ability to breathe clean air in workplaces, all e-cigarettes should be treated in the same ways as other tobacco products.

Thank you for taking time to read my comments on this important public health issue for our state.

Sincerely,
