Tobacco ad bill introduced

Published on .

Sen. Wendell Ford, as expected, has introduced a bill to regulate tobacco advertising. The bill is weaker than President Clinton's proposal, which would give regulatory authority to the Food & Drug Administration. The Senate Minority whip from Kentucky proposes legislation that would leave ad regulation with the Federal Trade Commission. It would also ban advertising of tobacco in publications with significant youth subscribership, in movie theaters and as props in movies.
