To Pass Smokefree Ordinances
 

Action Alert

Tell them you want smokefree air in Virginia!

Publication Date: 2008-02-08
You'll be interested to know that last night, all eight of the House smokefree bills were killed in the ABC/Gaming subcommittee of House General Laws by a voice vote. But the fight is not over!

The Senate versions have passed the full Senate and will be considered in the same subcommittee in the House of Delegates sometime within the next two weeks.

Now is the time to tell your Delegate that you want a smokefree Virginia, and that the Senate bills deserve a fair hearing before an impartial committee! The General Laws Committee and members of the House still have another chance to do the right thing and support smoke free legislation.

Twenty-two states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and hundreds of cities and counties have passed smokefree laws that cover all workplaces, including restaurants and bars. Isn't it time Virgina has a chance to breathe smokefree air?

Thanks for your support in bringing smokefree air to Virginia!
