I am writing to express strong support for the FDA Deeming Authority Clarification Act of 2015 (H.R. 2058) and urge you to co-sponsor this bill which would amend the Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act to change the grandfather date for newly deemed tobacco products to the date when the deeming regulation is finalized.
The FDA Deeming Authority Clarification Act of 2015 (HR 2058), introduced by Representative Tom Cole of Oklahoma, would save the U.S. vapor industry from being decimated by improper regulations by the FDA. This bill would amend the Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act to change the grandfather date for “deemed tobacco products.” This change would allow for all vapor products currently on the market to remain on the market without being subject to the burdensome (read: prohibitive) pre-market FDA approval application process.
I look forward to your response on this issue. I, along with my fellow members of CASAA (Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association), Thank you! for considering my comments and urge you to support H.R. 2058. God Bless America
Mrs. Sarah L. Gibson
