California State Bill Update

Last week the Appropriations committee took up AB1097 (introduced in early 2017) which prohibits the use of tobacco products (under CA law that includes vapor products) on state beaches and and in state parks. The vote was 12-5 along typical party lines (all D's in favor, all R's opposed). The bill has been referred to the suspense file (a temporary holding place to determine and weigh the cost involved). We do expect it'll come out of the suspense file and head into the next committee from there.
