Study: Only 5 percent of tobacco money used on prevention efforts
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Billions of dollars from the nation’s landmark tobacco settlement are being put to use across the country, but only about 5 percent is going to smoking prevention—about a quarter of what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends, a report released Saturday shows.
The 1998 settlement signed by the giants of the tobacco industry was meant to compensate the states for years of smoking-related health
expenses. Forty-six states signed it, and four other states settled separately for an additional $40 billion.
In a new report, the National Conference of State Legislatures analyzed the states’ plans for their shares of the tobacco money during the fiscal years 2000 through 2002.
Of the $21 billion being doled out during that period, it found:
* 36.1 percent had been set aside for health care.
• 26.0 percent went to bol
ster endowments or state budget reserves.
• 9.5 percent was to be spent on schools or youth programs.
• 5.0 percent was to go into tobacco prevention.
• 4.5 percent was to be put into research.
• 3.2 percent was to be used to assist tobacco growers and communities affected by the reduced quotas from tobacco companies, in most cases by offering education and training in other fields.
