*** CALL TO ACTION ***
It’s time to start calling, emailing, and tweeting Gov. Pence. We are urging the Governor to VETO HB 1432. Please ask your friends, family, co-workers, and fellow vapers to call, email, and share this post.
Talking Points: (Be Respectful and Polite)
1: HB 1432 puts nearly 200 small businesses and over 1,800 gainfully employed Hoosiers in jeopardy. The lack of product choices and the cost of compliance will force many small businesses to close their doors.
2: HB 1432 criminalizes home brewing of e-liquid, for personal use. Home brewing, or DIY, is currently allowed for beer, wine, dry tobacco, and other adult products.
3: HB 1432 will place unheard of and unlawful restrictions on out-of-state manufacturers. This bill tries to assert authority over an out-of-state manufacturer’s production process, facility design, security measures, and personnel. This is not done to any other industry and is clearly unconstitutional.
4: HB 1432 sets up a closed market that benefits large powerful companies at the expense of small businesses and hard working Hoosiers.
