I wanted to pass along a great resource from the 2019 Tobacco Policy and Responsible Retailing Conference I attended last week. This was graciously shared by Pennsylvania. If you remember way back, I provided everyone with breakdown of the Agreement of Voluntary Compliance (AVCs). Pennsylvania developed snapshots for each company that has signed on. I have attached the one’s that are current in Virginia. I have also attached the original list that has AVCs for all of the states so you can see what else is happening. This list also details which other stores fall under the umbrella of the larger company.
I am currently working with the Attorney General to see how we, as a state, can bolster our efforts around the AVCs and the enforcement of them.
Many thanks for all the hard work you do on a daily basis!
