UPDATE: The House Tuesday voted down Senate Bill 2332, which would have raised the tobacco purchase age in Illinois to to 21.
A measure in play at the Statehouse would make it a crime to sell tobacco products, including cigarettes and vaping devices, to those under age 21.
Laura Sido of East Alton worked in bars and restaurants all of her adult life. She smoked on and off until earlier this month. Sido, a 49-year-old stay-at-home grandmother, now has a chronic lung disease, COPD. And she says she is in favor of anything that could keep young people from smoking.
