Check out this key title from Hein that touches on one of the key acts passed under the Obama Administration.
Edited by: William H. Manz
The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act is the most comprehensive federal initiative against smoking since radio and television advertising was banned in 1971. Motivating forces for this Act include estimates that:
- 21% of American adults smoke
- 23% of high school students also smoke
- 438,000 deaths each year can be attributed to smoking
The Act was also intended to meet the requirements set by the Supreme Court ruling in 2000, when it held in FDA v. Brown & Williamson Tobacco Co. that the FDA could not regulate tobacco without congressional approval. The Act easily passed both houses of Congress with bipartisan support and was quickly signed into law by President Obama. This set contains the text of the Act, the various bill versions, hearings, congressional debate, and Congressional Budget Office Reports.
