MISSISSIPPI – Stop a Big Tobacco Protection Act!

HB 1660 – 02.27.24 – (H) Title Sufficient; Do Pass

HB 1660 – 02.19.24 – (H) Referred to H. Ways and Means

SB 2441 – 02.16.24 – Introduced and referred to Judiciary, Division B

HB 790 – 01.31.24 – (H) Referred to H. Judiciary B

Three bills (HB 1660, HB 790, and SB 2441) known to advocates as “PMTA Registry” legislation have been introduced and are moving through the legislature. At the moment there are no hearings scheduled, but HB 1660 has already received a “do pass” recommendation that may send it to the floor of the House soon.

If enacted, this law would effectively make the state of Mississippi 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 these bills !

  • 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 1660 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 1660 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 🙂
