Passing Senate Bill 793




On August 4th, IYTC members provided public statements in favor of SB-793 at the Assembly Health Committee hearing. This bill would ban the sale of all flavored tobacco products across California. Lisa Lu, Chelsea Cheng, Franklin Cheng, Ryan Qu, Victor Lu, Rediet Retta, Erica Hou, and Oscar Lu of IYTC, ranging from 12 to 18 years old, all phoned in to advocate for this very important legislation. All the youth voices persuaded the Assembly to eventually pass SB793! IYTC has helped pass a similar bill SB38 in the Senate a year ago also with Senator Jerry Hill
