Alternative tobacco bill in Senate

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., introduces the Federal Tobacco Bill, S. 579, to establish an agency to regulate the manufacture, marketing and use of tobacco products under the Department of Health and Human Services. The legislation is similar to the Youth Prevention and Tobacco Harm Reduction Act, H.R. 1261, introduced March 3 by Rep. Steve Buyer, R-Ind. (1"The Tan Sheet" March 9, 2009, p. 3). During an Energy and Commerce Committee markup March 4, Buyer touted his tobacco bill as an alternative to Chairman Henry Waxman's, D-Calif., Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, H.R. 1256, which would make tobacco an FDA-regulated product. Waxman's bill passed the committee and will move to a floor vote
