Halt Implementation

Senator Johnson Calls on FDA to Halt Implementation of E-Cigarette Deeming Regulations

In a letter written last week to the FDA, Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) called on the FDA to halt implementation of the e-cigarette deeming regulations pending the change in administration coming this January.

Senator Johnson wrote: “The incoming administration and the 115th Congress will likely re-examine and unwind burdensome regulations imposed by the Obama Administration. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) deeming regulations of e-cigarettes is a primary example of a rule that could eliminate an entire nascent industry. Accordingly, given the substantial likelihood that this burdensome rule will be undone, I urge the FDA to cease implementation of its deeming regulation to spare the growing e-cigarette industry unnecessary and avoidable compliance costs that it currently faces.”

I do not generally agree with Republican calls for a loosening of public health regulations, but in this case, I wholeheartedly agree with Senator Johnson. The FDA e-cigarette deeming regulations are unduly burdensome and will result in the decimation of the e-cigarette industry, putting thousands of small vape shops and companies out of business and protecting cigarettes from competition from a much safer product.
