Independent Vapor Retailers Of Minnesota
HomeOur Accomplishments

 
Since the organization's inception in February of 2014, IVRM members - with the help of our lobbyist - have achieved many significant successes that have proven to be beneficial to the sustainability of Minnesota's hard-working businesses. These achievements include:


>> We have successfully defeated efforts at the state level - each of the past three years - attempting/proposing tax increases on vapor products. 

>> We have successfully defeated anti-vape efforts at the state level to include vapor in the statewide clean indoor air act. 

>> We have successfully defeated anti-vape efforts at the state level to include vapor in the statewide clean indoor air act. 

>> We have successfully fought and defeated various and numerous municipal level efforts to prohibit sampling and flavors in vape stores.

>> We have successfully fought and defeated various municipal level efforts to increase the age to purchase, to 21 (T21).

>> We have successfully established the IVRM organization as a recognized and well respected voice throughout the state!

>> Minnesota is also one of the few states to have earned bipartisan support on pro-vapor federal legislation. 

These successes are largely a result of our lobbyist's strong working relationships with legislators, commissioners, councils, and agency leaders from all areas of the state and varied partisan backgrounds.
