Senate to Consider Tobacco Legislation Next Week

The U.S. Senate is scheduled to take up the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (S. 982) early next week.  Dan Jaffe has written about the major constitutional issues this legislation poses at his Regulatory Rumblings blog

In advance of the Senate's floor action on the bill, we have forwarded our joint letter with the American Association of Advertising Agencies (4A's) and the American Advertising Federation (AAF) that was sent to HELP Committee Chairman Edward Kennedy prior to committee markup to the entire Senate. 

ANA also published an advertorial in the May 21st issue of the Wall Street Journal that discusses these same arguments as well.

If you have any questions, please contact Dan Jaffe in ANA's Washington office at 202-296-2359 or at djaffe@ana.net.
