Webinar: Moving Forward when Tobacco Preemption is in Effect

 Jul 22, 2019

 

 

Moving Forward when Tobacco Preemption is in Effect July 25, 2019 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m., Central Time The most effective tobacco control policies are often developed at the local level before being replicated and enhanced by state and other local governments. Preemption, which occurs when a higher governmental entity removes the authority of a local branch of government, threatens the ability of local public health leaders to execute their vision for tobacco control in their jurisdictions. In 2019, several state legislatures proposed measures that would preempt local jurisdictions from regulating tobacco products in some manner, demonstrating that preemption is still a crucial issue in tobacco control. The Tobacco Control Network, a peer network of ASTHO, and the Public Health Law Center are presenting a webinar on opportunities to promote tobacco control and cessation at the state level when tobacco preemption limits local authority.  ..
