**Please support HR 2058 which would allow vapor products currently on the market to stay on the market**
The FDA Deeming Authority Clarification Act of 2015 (HR 2058), introduced by Representative Tom Cole of Oklahoma, would save the U.S. vapor industry from being decimated by improper regulations by the FDA. This bill would amend the Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act to change the grandfather date for “deemed tobacco products.” This change would allow for all vapor products currently on the market to remain on the market without being subject to the burdensome (read: prohibitive) pre-market FDA approval application process.
We are asking consumers to express strong support for H.R. 2058 and urge your representatives to co-sponsor this bill.We are also asking members who are not residents in Representative Cole’s district to send a written letter by traditional means. You can print out our pre-written letter here. We have provided the mailing address to his Washington, DC office below. As usual, you are encouraged to write your own letter adding your personal story, but feel free to copy ours.
