MISSOURI – Stop a Big Tobacco Protection Act!

current status




Signed by

02.15.24 – HEARING: House Committee on Crime Prevention and Public Safety, 8:00 AM, House Hearing Room 7.

01.25.24 – Referred to H. Crime Prevention and Public Safety

01.04.24 – Second Read

01.03.24 Introduced

A bill (HB 2211) known to advocates as “PMTA Registry” legislation has been introduced and referred to the House Committee on Crime Prevention and Public Safety. This bill received a hearing on Thursday, Feb. 15 in the House Committee on Crime Prevention and Public Safety. As of this update (02.20.24) HB 2211 is not scheduled for its next hearing. 

If enacted, this law would effectively make the state of Missouri 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 this HB 2211!

  • 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 2211 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 2211 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 🙂
