Suzanne Binau, formerly of Avita Health System, requested support for the campaign of a tri-agency partnership for which she is currently contracted to be Grassroots Coordinator. The partnership includes representation from the American Cancer Association, American Heart Association, and American Lung Association, and work is being done to achieve an increase in taxes on cigarettes of $1/pack, an equalization of other tobacco products tax, and use of 12 cents of the proposed $1 increase for tobacco prevention and control. Ms. Binau advises there is similar legislation in committee right now; the campaign aims to encourage moving the legislation from committee and passing it in both houses. Rep. Jeff McClain is a key legislator on the issue.
Meetings for the remainder of 2014 will be held on October 14 and December 9. The 2nd Tuesday in November falls on Veterans Day and will need to be rescheduled.
