Increasing the Tobacco Sales Age in New Jersey
The New Jersey State Assembly voted this week to pass Minimum Legal Sales Age legislation with 52 Yes, 17 No, 5 Not Voting, and 6 Abstaining. Last year, the same legislation passed through the Assembly and onto the Governor’s desk, where it was pocket vetoed. This year, we hope to see a different result come from the Governor’s office to protect the health and wellness of New Jersey youth.
Mr. Christie has 45 days to pass, veto, or conditionally veto the legislation; if he does nothing at the end of this time period, the bill becomes law.
