[This Call to Action is concluded as successful! Thank you to everyone who participated]

A bill (SF 107) known to advocates as “PMTA Registry” or “Vapor Product Registry” legislation has passed the Wyoming Senate and moving on to debate in the House. This bill has been heard in the H. Corporations and H. Appropriations Committees and been amended.

The latest amendment to be included in SF 107 would allow for products containing non-tobacco nicotine (NTN, or Synthetic nicotine) for which a premarket application is filed with FDA to be listed on the directory.

Idealy this legislation is defeated, but if it is truely intended as a deference to the federal regulations, the 2020 and 2022 cutoff dates for PMTAs must be removed. As long as bills like this contain similar deadlines excluding thousands of products it should be clear that this is not about public safety or consumer protection. This legislation is all about getting states to do the dirty work of knocking out the competition for cigarette companies.

If enacted, this law would effectively make the state of Wyoming 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.

  • 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.
  • SF 107 will close down 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 SF 107 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 🙂
