AASA Leads Group Letter to Congress on Vaping Legislation

Today AASA along with our partners at the National Association of Secondary School Principals led a letter to the House of Representatives urging support for HR 2339, The Reversing the Youth Tobacco Epidemic Act. 

We felt it was important to unite the education community formally around this major legislative proposal that would assist schools in addressing the vaping epidemic that is impacting one out of four high school students we educate. 

Specifically, this legislation would prohibit the use of all flavored tobacco product and extend advertising restrictions that currently apply to cigarettes to other tobacco products including e-cigarettes.
