Codey to announce tobacco legislation in NYC

State Sen. Dick Codey is scheduled to appear today with New York City Mayoral candidate Christine Quinn to announce new tobacco legislation.

Codey and Assemblyman Ruben Ramos will introduce legislation requiring anyone purchasing tobacco products to be 21 years old.  Codey signed legislation while governor to make the age limit 19.

New York City officials already have called for similar legislation in New York.  Codey and Quinn will highlight the need for a uniform stance to avoid across-the-border purchases.
