  printed to be committed to the Committee on Investigations and Govern-
  ment Operations

AN ACT to amend the tax law and the state finance law,  in  relation  to
  allocating  certain  revenue to the tobacco use prevention and control
  program fund for programs to help smokers quit and  to  keep  children
  from smoking

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Statement of  legislative  intent.  The  legislature  finds
that:
  New  York  state  has  raised  over  twelve billion dollars in tobacco
revenues over the past seven years, yet only three and one-half  percent
of  these revenues have been spent on the state's Tobacco Use Prevention
and Control Program.
  In the year 2013, New York state will spend on  tobacco  control  only
sixteen  percent  of  the  amount recommended by the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention.  New York state was once  a  leader  in  tobacco
control  support  spending,  but  now  ranks  twenty-first in the United
States.
  From the years 2007-2013, funding for the New York State  Tobacco  Use
Prevention  and  Control  Program was cut by more than half. This inade-
quate funding level for the program stands in contrast to promises  made
in  1998  by  public  officials  to invest state dollars earned from the
Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement in tobacco control programs.
  The Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement states that its purpose is  to
"achieve  for the Settling States and their citizens significant funding
for the advancement of public health" and "the implementation of  impor-
tant tobacco-related public health measures."
  When  more  adequately  funded,  the  State Tobacco Use Prevention and
Control Program achieved successes in the effort to  curb  tobacco  use.
