House passes bill to raise tobacco purchase age to 21

Lawmakers on Tuesday successfully passed a bill through the House raising the age to purchase tobacco products to 21. The legislation moves to the Senate for a vote expected next week. There it will likely receive enough support to land on Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s desk.
