New California consumer groups are planning to gather in Sacramento on Monday to call on Gov.
Gavin Newsom and state legislators to reject a proposed ballot measure that would ban smoking e cig devices at home.
The group, California Merchants for Healthy Living, said Monday that they will march to the state capitol building to call for Newsom to veto the measure, which the California Department of Public Health has approved as a ballot measure.
The coalition, which includes the California Association of Health Care Organizations and California Health Care Professionals, has said e cig companies have been unfairly maligned in the debate over e-cigarettes and that smoking is safe.
It also has urged the governor to oppose the proposal, which it says is based on inaccurate information.
It’s unclear if the governor will follow up with the coalition, as he has done not respond to requests for comment.
