Tobacco Signs (RI General Laws 11-9-13)


    During the 2013 session of the RI General Assembly, amendments were made to Rhode Island General Laws 11-9-13. These amendments added a provision to the law requiring that signs mandated under 11-9-13.7 be posted in Spanish as well as English; and added Section 11-9-13.8.1. As of 7/1/13, all licensed retail tobacco vendors are required to display for public view at each cash register, tobacco vending machine or other place from which tobacco products are sold the following signs or exact duplicates in both English and Spanish:
