Esperanza Urges Congress to Pass Historic Tobacco Legislation
Date:7/29/2008

H.R. 1108 Allows FDA Un-Precedential Regulatory Authority Over Tobacco

WASHINGTON, July 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Esperanza, the largest Hispanic faith-based organization in the country, presses Congress to take advantage of opportunity to prevent youth smoking and pass H.R 1108, "The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act." This legislation gives the FDA the ability to regulate tobacco products and marketing in order to prevent tobacco companies from targeting youth.

"With H.R. 1108 the FDA would have the ability to further restrict sales of tobacco products to children and require more meaningful warnings on tobacco products," said the President of Esperanza Rev. Luis Cortes. "This offers a great deal of hope, and we are pleased to see that this bill will receive a vote on the house floor. Congress needs to pass this historic legislation now!"

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.
