On this #GivingTuesday, the Senate Committee on Health and Human Services (HHS) met to hear from experts and the public regarding the emerging public health concerns from the rise in e-cigarette use and “vaping,” especially among minors; and to determine if additional policies or laws are needed to protect the public’s health.
The HHS Committee heard from several panels of doctors, educators, bureaucrats and other experts. Then they accepted comments from the public. Our executive director was present to offer a Vaping/Vaporizing Fact Sheet and thoughtful testimony.

“You outlaw it or you can regulate
it, which we do not have the resources and bureaucracy to do. And let’s not
forget that personal responsibility is important,” said Sen Charles Perry (R).
We will update this post with the
hearing video once it is available.
