Your community has a range of policy choices to consider when designing a local tobacco retailer licensing ordinance (TRL). Our Model California Ordinance Requiring a Tobacco Retailer License (“Model TRL”) contains the essential elements for an effective licensing ordinance that enforces federal, state, and local tobacco control laws. From there, communities can add “Plug-ins” to expand the ordinance. These Plug-ins are not intended to be adopted independently, however, any of the Plug-ins could be incorporated into an existing TRL by amending the ordinance. This fact sheet describes each of our Plug-ins.
