A bill (HB 2801) known to advocates as “PMTA Registry” legislation has been introduced and is currently in the Committee on Federal and State Affairs. HB 2801 is scheduled for a House Hearing on

    To request committee agendas or submit testimony please email H.Fed.State.Affairs@house.ks.gov. All testimony submissions must be in pdf format.

If enacted, this law would effectively make the state of Kansas 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, hundreds of workers out of jobs, and thousands of people at risk of returning to smoking, or delaying attempts at quitting.

Please take a minute to send an email to your lawmakers urging them to oppose HB 2801!

  • Tell your lawmakers that this legislation is more about protecting Big Tobacco profits than improving public health and share your personal story about switching to vaping.
  • HB 2801 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 HB 2801 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 🙂
