Follow-up to Meeting with Congressman Tonko
In August, SAANYS was honored to host a conversation with Congressman Paul Tonko and administrators from his district, where there was considerable discussion on the vaping crisis. As communicated in his follow-up letter to participants and SAANYS staff [download the letter here], the congressman notes his participation on the Energy and Commerce Committee and its September hearing on the public health impacts of e-cigarettes, as well as a bill that he is co-sponsoring – the Reversing the Youth Tobacco Epidemic Act of 2019. The discussion and the congressman’s questioning during the Health Subcommittee hearing can be viewed here: https://www.facebook.com/reppaultonko/videos/2341256696123622/. Thank you congressman Tonko for your steadfast response to, and work on, this critical issue facing our teens and schools.
