By March 22nd, Congress will need to come up with a plan to fund a massive two-year spending package. But right now, we have an opportunity to urge support for predicate date change language in the appropriations side of the 2018 budget that will keep vapor products on the market beyond FDA's prohibition date of 2022.
At the same time, those of you who live in districts represented by a co-sponsor of the stand-alone version of the predicate date change (HR 1136) will be sending a thank you message. As much as some in Congress need encouragement to support us, those who are already on our side need to hear that we support them.
Help us show Congress that we are unified in our support for changing the predicate date to August 8th, 2016 and that we are in favor of reasonable regulation that preserves consumer choice.
