With the full U.S. House of Representatives scheduled to vote on House Bill H.R. 2339 on Thursday, Feb. 27, the National Association of Tobacco Outlets (NATO) urges retail members and their employees, NATO wholesale members and their employees, legal age adult customers and NATO manufacturer member employees who have not yet sent a letter to their U.S. Representative need to do so now.
