House Passes FDA Regulation of Tobacco

Yesterday was a big step forward on the tobacco front --- The House of Representatives passed a bill allowing FDA regulation of tobacco with a vote of 298 to 112.

Click on this link to see how your Congressman voted yesterday, and don't forget to follow-up with letters expressing your thanks for their involvement or concern if they did not support it. My sincere thanks to Congressman Brian Bilbray for supporting this bill!

So much of this is due to the hard work of so many of you to champion this cause with your local legislators in awesome grassroots efforts. I cannot thank you enough for all that you do!! Let's keep our efforts moving, as it's expected the Senate will take up this issue later this year (and it's expected that Obama will pass into law). WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE especially in a tobacco substance area that causes so many cancer-related deaths.
