Domenici opposes anti-tobacco ads

Published on .

Senate Budget Committee Chairman Peter Domenici (R., N.M.) said Congress should direct the federal government's share of the funds raised in any comprehensive tobacco settlement toward covering Medicare expenses. Other senators have suggested Congress allocate as much as $750 million a year for a massive anti-tobacco advertising campaign or use the money to pay for other programs or for tax cuts.
