Bills that died

Below are a few bills that did not pass this year:

TOBACCO Dubbed the “Tobacco 21 Act,” the legislation would have preempted the establishment of the minimum age for the sale of tobacco products and nicotine products to the state and raised the age of purchasing such products to 21.

FRACKING Measures to ban the oil and gas drilling technique known as hydraulic fracking failed to make it to the floor. Environmentalists opposed the bills because not enough protection mechanisms were in place and business interests supported the legislation, explaining that the acidizing environmentalists opposed is used to repair damaged and clogged wells.

WINDSHIELD INSURANCE COVERAGE Neither chamber advanced legislation that would prohibit auto-glass shops from offering cash, gift cards and other incentives to motorists to attract windshield repair work.
