Tobacco settlement health provisions in Jeffords bill to be added to McCain legislation.

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

TOBACCO SETTLEMENT PUBLIC HEALTH PROVISIONS IN JEFFORDS BILL would be merged with Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) settlement bill (S 1415) under the Senate leadership's current plan for the legislation. A March 18 mark-up of Sen. James Jeffords' (R-Vt.) tobacco settlement bill (S 1648) was cut short by debate among members of the Senate Labor & Human Resources Committee. Further mark-up of the bill is not expected. As introduced, Jeffords' bill contains a detailed outline for funding states' "science-based" smoking cessation programs ("The Tan Sheet" March 9, p. 12).
