Press release

 

WASHINGTON— Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) released the following statement after the House passed legislation to ban all flavored tobacco products and increase taxes on consumers.

“Using tobacco is bad for you and we all should agree that we need to prevent children from using tobacco products,” Mullin said. “Unfortunately, this misguided legislation is not the solution. All this will do is eliminate consumer choice and raise taxes on law-abiding adults. Instead of passing legislation that has no chance at becoming law, we should be working together to find solutions that will actually protect our kids and address the youth vaping epidemic.”

Mullin was not present for the vote, but he would have voted “no” on H.R. 2339, the Protecting American Lungs and Reversing the Youth Tobacco Epidemic Act of 2020.
