Legislation known among advocates as “PMTA Registry Bills” are being promoted in Tallahassee by incumbent tobacco companies (cigarette makers). If enacted, this law would effectively make the state of Florida an enforcement arm of the Food and Drug Administration empowering state authorities to enforce the disastrous federal anti-vaping regulations. H1007 is being considered by Governor DeSantis for veto or passage. But before the bill got to his desk it was amended in a way that takes pressure off of Florida retailers and manufacturers. While the amendment is an improvement, the ideal outcome is a veto.

Please take a moment to send a message urging him to VETO H1007. Be sure to include your personal story about switching to vaping.

Keep Making Phone Calls! Talking points are below if you need a little help.

Governor Ron DeSantis

  • (850) 717-9337
  • Tell your officials that this legislation is more about protecting Big Tobacco profits than improving public health and share your personal story about switching to vaping.
  • H1007/ S1006 will close down hundreds of small businesses and put hundreds of workers out of a job.
  • The state of Florida doesn’t need to carry water for the FDA by enforcing its disastrous anti-vaping regulations.
  • FDA has arbitrarily denied marketing orders for nearly 1 million products and is failing to move forward with authorizing others.
  • If H1007/ S1006 are enacted, consumers will only have access to a handful of products that have applications pending, or are authorized by FDA.
  • Be brief, be kind, and say thank you 🙂
