Governor

  • Bill numbers change frequently in Iowa, so for complete status history check the linked bill pages below.
  • 04.19.24 – HF 2677: Passed Senate, 42y – 4n.
  • 04.04.24 – HF 2677 is now “attached” to SF 2404 after being amended in the House.

Legislation (HF 2677) known to advocates as “PMTA Registry” legislation has passed the Senate and is heading to Governor Kim Reynolds.

This alert is updated to urge the governor to veto this bill. Talking points are also provided below if you need help or inspiration for your comments.

Take a moment to contact Governor Reynolds through any, or all of the channels listed below:

  • Phone: (515) 281-5211 (M-F, 8:00am to 4:30pm)
  • Twitter: @IAGovernor
  • Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/IAGovernor/
  • Email: Use the form provided on this page.

If enacted, this law would effectively make the state of Iowa an enforcement arm of the Food and Drug Administration empowering state authorities to enforce the disastrous federal anti-vaping regulations. This would put independent vape shops out of business, workers out of jobs, and thousands of people at risk of returning to smoking, or delaying attempts at quitting.

Please take a minute to make contact with Governor Reynolds urging her to veto HF2677!

  • Briefly share your story about switching to vaping or any other smoke-free alternative to cigarettes and include any health changes you’ve experienced.
  • Tell the governor that this legislation is more about protecting Big Tobacco profits than improving public health and share your personal story about switching to vaping.
  • HF 2677 will close down hundreds of small businesses and put hundreds of workers out of a job.
  • The state 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 HF 2677 is 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 🙂
