Mark your calendars for Tuesday, April 26, 2016 @ 7:15pm and share your views on an Albany County law to raise the minimum legal age for sales of tobacco products to 21.

The Albany County Legislature will hold a public hearing in the Legislative Chambers, Albany County Courthouse, Eagle Street, Albany, NY on Local Law C for 2016 (announcement here). A copy of the proposed law can be viewed here.

If you are a resident of Albany County or work in an organization that serves Albany County residents, you have an opportunity to be heard. Have an opinion? April 26th would be a good time to share it. If you’re unable to attend the public hearing, you can submit your comments in writing to the Clerk of the Legislature at:
