05 Mar Texas: Urge House Committee on Public Health to Oppose Age Increase Legislation

This legislation proposes raising the legal limit from 18 to 21 years of age, encouraging individuals to order online or make the drive to neighboring states to purchase tobacco products. H.B. 749 will be heard by the House Committee on Public Health tomorrow. Click here to the Committee TODAY and express your opposition to H.B. 749.
