Texas Senators Vote for Historic Bill to Regulate Tobacco Products

WASHINGTON, June 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids applauds U.S. Senator John Cornyn for playing a leadership role as the U.S. Senate passed historic legislation that gives the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authority to regulate tobacco products, including the authority to crack down on tobacco marketing and sales to kids.
