Date:5/12/2008

House Bill Gives FDA Regulatory Authority Over Tobacco

WASHINGTON, May 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Esperanza, the largest Hispanic faith-based organization in the country, today announces their support of H.R. 1108, "The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act." The legislation gives FDA regulatory authority over tobacco products.

"We encourage Congress to pass this important legislation this year. H.R. 1108 has broad bi-partisan support and could genuinely help our people," said the President of Esperanza Rev. Luis Cortes. "Within our Hispanic community lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths. With 16.2 percent of Hispanic adults smoking cigarettes, a significant part of our community is at high-risk."

"With regulatory authority over tobacco, the FDA could further restrict sales of tobacco products to children, require more meaningful warnings on tobacco products, and enable consumers to access the information on all the ingredients in any given tobacco product," Cortes continued. "We urge Congress to pass this legislation this year."

The Reverend Luis Cortes, Jr. is the founder and president of Esperanza. Esperanza is the largest Hispanic Faith-Based Evangelical network in the country. With a national network of 12,000 faith and community-based agencies, Esperanza is one of the leading voices for Hispanics in America.
