LCA Signs on in Support of FDA Tobacco Regulations

July 17, 2007--LCA joined over 400 national, state, and local organizations in signing on to a letter urging the US Senate to support legislation that gives the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the authority to regulate the tobacco industry for the first time, ending exceptional protection granted only to tobacco companies and to no other industry.  This legislation would give the FDA the necessary tools and recources to effectively regulate the manufacturing, marketing, labeling, distribution and sale of tobacco products.
