with H.R.293 which is nearly verbatim the same thing in the previous bit of terrible legislation I wrote about, which you can check out here. I'm not going to bore you with the details of how truly awful that proposed bit of legislation is for a second time, but if you want to check it out that's the link.
The bill was introduced earlier this month by representative Rosa DeLauro, who reps Connecticut and is the chair of the House Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee. This is the House subcommittee that oversees the U.S. Food & Drug Administration almost directly.
The last time around this abomination attempt at legislation only ended up with four co-sponsors, and as of this post it has a respectably strong zero backers. If this does somehow come to pass it will go into effect a year later.
Not that we have much care for the cigar industry because we in the vape world know that the combustion is where the damage comes from, but this bill would radically change the regulation behind online cigar sales as well. As it currently stands it is estimated that over half of cigar purchases in the United States are bought online.
If you're from Connecticut you might want to reach out to this lady and let her know exactly what you think about eLiquids, vaping, and her attempt at sabotaging your love of the world of vape.
