CONCORD – Last week, HB 1245, was signed into law. The omnibus legislation consisted of several bills concerning state agencies including SB 248, Senator Watters’ (D-Dover) bill to increase the age for sales and possession of tobacco products to 21.

Prime sponsor of SB 248, Senator David Watters (D-Dover), issued the following statement in response:

“Tobacco remains the top preventable cause of death and disease in New Hampshire. By raising the age to purchase and possess tobacco to 21, we have the potential to save thousands of lives over our lifetime. I am happy to see this important legislation signed into law and thank my colleagues and the advocates, including Dover Youth to Youth, for all their work this session.”
