Tomorrow, the Senate Committee on Health and Human Services is holding a public hearing on Senate Bill 364, which is the Senate version of the Wisconsin's T21 legislation. While WPHA and WALHDAB believe the bill does not go far enough in comprehensively addressing youth e-cigarette and tobacco use, both organizations do support an amendment that at least makes Wisconsin consistent with federal standards that require age-of-sale to be 21 years old to purchase tobacco, nicotine, and e-cigarette products.

WPHA and WALHDAB lobbyists will distribute the attached written testimony in support of the amendment to committee members at tomorrow's hearing. The testimony endorses the amendment while pointing out that more needs to be done to execute a comprehensive approach to this public health concern.
