Ad groups alarmed by tobacco bill

Published on .

Proposed new federal tobacco labeling legislation would permit states to enact their own cigarette advertising rules by ending a federal preemption in place since 1969. Ad groups said today that removing the preemption would open the door to numerous state rules that could virtually ban advertising of cigarettes. The legislation was proposed by U.S. Rep. Marty Meehan (D., Mass.) and James Hansen (R., Utah), and Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D., N.J.) and Dick Durbin (D., Ill.)
