Don't Cut State Tobacco Control Funding
Dear Editor, Last week, Governor Patterson announced plans to bring the NYS Legislature back for another special session to address a projected $1.2 billion shortfall in the current state budget. This session is scheduled for November 18. While un-welcomed budget cuts are inevitable, it is imperative that funding to the New York State Tobacco Control Program is not cut.
