Nobody said fighting Big Tobacco would be easy….


…And its not!

It’s a fight that has been going on for decades and never seems to get any easier. Despite numerous “wins” at the local, state, and federal levels it is always a struggle to trump the big money and big influence that big tobacco always has.

In Texas the tobacco industry has pumped in between $1.2 million and $2.4 million in the last 5 months according to reports form the Texas Ethics Commission compiled by the Dallas Morning News. They have retained 40 lobbyists to defeat Smoke-Free Texas.

With around three weeks left in the legislative session we need to show lawmakers the type of support smoke-free air really has. Visit our “action site” at www.SmokeFreeTexasNow.org and let your voice be heard! We can counter Big Tobacco but only if all of us stand up and work together.
