The evidence is clear: alcohol advertising has a significant influence on kids, driving up underage drinking. It’s bad for the health and safety of young people.
There’s no place for alcohol advertising on Massachussets state property.
Tell the Massachusetts House Committee on Ways and Means to support House Bill 851, which would prohibit alcohol advertising on state property.
Momentum is building. In December the SAFE MA (Supporting an Alcohol Advertisement-Free Environment in Massachusetts) collaborative was successful in pushing the Joint Committee on State Administration and Regulatory Oversight to favorable vote HB851 out of committee. And in January, the MBTA agreed to stop allowing alcohol advertising on its properties.
Now it’s up to the Ways and Means Committee to move the bill forward. Tell them to do the right thing and stop alcohol advertising on state property.
Don’t let alcohol industry lobbyists have the final say. Send Representative Brian Dempsey, Chair for the House Committee on Ways and Means, an email telling him to act now.
