Senate Committee MUST Vote on Smoke Free Workplaces by Feb. 5

by Julie H. on Friday, February 1, 2013

According to the straw-polling that coalition members have done, we have enough votes for the smoke free workplaces bill to pass the Senate Public Health and Welfare Committee. However, Senator Dean Kirby, the committee chair, will NOT let his committee vote on the bill. If the bill doesn't pass the committee by Tuesday, February 5, the bill will die and won't have the chance to become law.

We need all You're the Cure advocates in Mississippi to call Senator Dean Kirby today at (601) 359-3234 and leave a message with his assistant to “please bring statewide smoke free up for a VOTE in committee."

Unless Chairman Kirby continues to get your phone calls, he will not see this as a serious issue. Once you make your call, please let us know! Click here and scroll down to "Record Your Own Action" to fill out the brief form.
