Committee Formed to Fight Ballot Measure to Overturn Flavored Tobacco Ban

This week, a group of California public health organizations joined forces to form the “Committee to Protect California Kids” to lead the effort to oppose the 2022 ballot measure to overturn the flavored tobacco ban enacted through SB 793 (Hill) in 2020.

The Committee includes the African American Tobacco Control Leadership Council, American Heart Association, American Lung Association, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, Patients Against Vaping E-Cigarettes, and the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. The Committee is Co-Chaired by Board of Equalization Member Malia Cohen, and the Committee anticipates receiving support from a broad range of organizations and individuals in California.
