The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids applauds U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA) for his leadership in introducing and advancing legislation that gives the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulatory authority over tobacco products, including the authority to crack down on tobacco marketing and sales to kids. The Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) approved the bill Wednesday and sent it to the full Senate for consideration.

Thanks to Senator Kennedy's leadership and persistence, we are a critical step closer to enacting his historic legislation to protect our children from tobacco addiction and save lives. We look forward to working with Senator Kennedy to bring this bill before the full Senate and enact it into law in the near future. FDA regulation of tobacco products, the nation's number one cause of preventable death, is an essential step toward improving health and reducing health care costs in the United States.

This legislation has strong, bipartisan support in Congress and across the nation. The House of Representatives on April 2 voted 298-112 to approve similar legislation. It has been endorsed by more than 1,000 public health, faith, medical and other organizations (see list at www.tobaccofreekids.org/reports/fda/organizations.pdf). A poll last year found that 70 percent of American voters support FDA regulation of tobacco products (see details at
