The date for the Public Health Committee Hearing is March 15th at 10:30am
The address is:
Public Health Committee
Room 3000, Legislative Office Building
Hartford, CT 06106

We need as many vapers as possible to attend this hearing. If you don't want to speak that is fine. Just you attending sends a message.

Please! If you are able to attend it would be greatly appreciated.

I am most certainly going to do my best to attend that meeting.  And if I attend the meeting I will damned sure be willing to stand up and testify.  This really chaps me that public health officials say they want people to stop smoking and yet they pull this kind of shenanigans.

The address I can find is 300 Capitol Avenue in Hartford and the parking garage is 210 capitol avenue.  I have seen these addresses in several places but have yet to visit this area myself.
