As of October 21, the Deeming regulation is at the White House. Hopefully, this a positive step toward having a final rule in the near future. The timing of this news is fortunate as we have planned a National Call-In Day to the White House on Tuesday, October 27 to request President Obama to finalize the Deeming rule.
We hope that all your organizations will be able to join us in participating in this national day of action. What we are asking is for people to call the White House comment line at 202-456-1111 on October 27 and ask President Obama to stand up for our kids and public health by giving the Food and Drug Administration the authority to regulate all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, cigars and hookah.
Below are some sample talking points, tweets and Facebook messages. I have also attached a graphic that you can feel free to use on your social media channels. We will be using the hashtag #NoTobacco4Kids.
