Op-Ed in The Hill Argues for a Change in the Predicate Date for E-Cigarettes; Supports Appropriations Rider that Would Accomplish This
Today, Scott Ballin and I published an op-ed article in The Hill which argues that the predicate date for electronic cigarettes should be changed from February 15, 2007 - as proposed by the FDA - to at least the effective date of the final deeming regulations. We therefore support a House Appropriations rider that would accomplish precisely this. Discussion on that rider begins today. We hope that this piece will help inform that debate.
