Bill introduced to raise legal age for tobacco/nicotine/vaping products

Senate Bill 364, authored by Sen. Howard Marklein (R-Spring Green, pictured) and Rep. John Spiros (R-Marshfield) and a bipartisan cadre of fellow lawmakers, has been introduced in the legislature.  This bill changes the age for purchasing cigarettes, tobacco products, or nicotine products from 18 to 21, and imposes a minimum age for purchasing vapor products.

The WASB supports this bill based on our member-approved resolutions and has provided a sample resolution for boards to use to express their support for the bill on our Boards Taking Action webpage.  There you can find resolutions passed by other school boards on various issues as well as WASB sample resolutions that boards can use for the basis of their own resolutions.  Click on the gray box labeled “Sample Letters and Resolutions” and look for the “Sample Board Resolution in Support of Tobacco 21 Legislation in Wisconsin”
