With your help, HB19-1033 passed the Colorado House, but our work is not done.
Current state law penalizes local governments if they decide to enact tobacco control policies such as adopting a tax or fee on cigarettes. The loss of revenue can significantly impact city budgets and prevent cities from acting to improve the health of the community. House Bill 19-1033 gives the power back to local communities to make their own decisions without the penalty.
We need you to call your senator today and tell them you support HB19-1033: 720-903-1085.
Tobacco use claims the lives of 5,100 Coloradans every year. Nearly 8% of Colorado high school students smoke, and over 20% use e-cigarettes.
Act now on 1033! Call 720-903-1085 and follow the prompts to be connected with your Senator. With local control, we can empower communities to enact policies that are proven to reduce tobacco-use among youth and adults.
Together we will be a relentless force for building longer, healthier lives in Colorado!
