Texas: Vote No on Age Increase Legislation
House Bill 749 establishes an arbitrary new age restriction on adults to purchase legal tobacco products. H.B. 749 proposes raising the age to purchase tobacco products from 18 to 21 years of age, encouraging individuals to order online or make the short drive to neighboring states to purchase tobacco products. This legislation currently awaits consideration by the House Public Health Committee. Please contact the Committee TODAY and express opposition to H.B. 749.
