A bill (HB 1591) known to advocates as “PMTA Registry” legislation has been introduced and referred to the House Committee on Commerce and Consumer Affairs and is scheduled for ongoing work sessions. A public hearing was held on February 6 with no vote taken.

  • The House Commerce and Consumer Affairs Committee will meet on March 13 for an Executive Session at 10:00 AM. Although this is not a public hearing, please take a moment to send a message to your lawmakers urging them to reject HB 1591!

If enacted, this law would effectively make the state of New Hampshire 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 send an email to your state representative urging them to oppose HB 1591!

  • 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 1591 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 1591 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 🙂
