Murray Addresses House of Representatives
  

By MyFM's Rick Michaels - A time honored tradition in the Legislature is acknowledging the maiden speech for a legislator on the floor of the House or Senate and last week, State Representative Brian Murray of Milford made his first speech on the floor of the Massachusetts House of Representatives.  Murray spoke in favor of the bill to prohibit the sale of nicotine delivery products, such as e-cigarettes, vape pens and any tobacco related product to anyone under the age of 21.  Representative Murray focused on a personal story of his grandfather, William Murray, who was elected in 1916 to the same seat he now holds and who passed away prematurely due to constant cigar smoking.  On the floor of the House Murray said tobacco and nicotine use are the leading cause of preventable illness and premature death in Massachusetts with young people particularly susceptible as 95-percent of tobacco users become addicted before the ago of 21.  The bill to push the smoking age from 18 to 21 across the state was passed 146-to-4.  The measure now moves onto the Senate.
