On January 20th, the American Lung Association released its annual State of Tobacco Control 2010 report, which tracks progress on key tobacco control policies at the federal and state level, assigning grades based on whether laws are adequately protecting citizens from tobacco-caused diseases. In 2010, the federal government made major advances in enacting and implementing important policy measures to protect citizens. The Obama Administration and the 111th Congress (2009-2010) enacted what will be regarded as the strongest tobacco control policies thus far in American history. Thomas A. Carr and Erika Sward of the American Lung Association discuss the report and where you can get more info. Available content includes soundbites.
