(remote testimony)

The Finance committee is only interested in hearing testimony about the economic implications from this proposed tax. Testimony about the public health benefit of affordable smoke-free alternatives to cigarettes is best saved for a potential second hearing in a health-focused committee.

You can take action now by simply sharing your opposition to this bill via the legislature’s website. The committee needs to see a wave of opposition to this tax so that the bill doesn’t move to the next stage.

If enacted, HB 1676 would impose one of, if not the highest retail taxes on vapor products in the country. A 33% tax would be paid on hardware, tanks, coils, batteries, and e-liquid.
