Bills that would have raised the minimum age to purchase tobacco from 18 to 21 have failed to pass.
Both S.B. 13 and H.B. 2331 failed to make it out of committee and neither made passed by Feb. 28, crossover day, the deadline for bills to be passed by one chamber so the other chamber can evaluate the measure.
In addition, S.B. 61, which would have banned smoking if anyone under the age of 16 was in the car, also failed.
