NYS PTA supports S.8610 (Hannon)/A.8688 (Rosenthal), which prohibits the sale and distribution of flavored e-liquid which creates a distinguishable flavor or aroma for use in e-cigarettes.
Last year, we vigorously advocated for the inclusion of e-cigarettes in the Clean Indoor Air Act and the ban of their use on school grounds.
Alarmingly, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that e-cigarettes use among students in grades 6-12 tripled in one year's time. Shockingly, e-cigarettes are available in more than 7,000 fruit and candy flavors and use cartoons and celebrities, which are appealing to youth, in their advertising.
Take action to support S.8610/A.8688! There are only 13 scheduled session days left! Take Action Now!
