HOUSE ENERGY COMMITTEE APPROVES FDA REGULATION OF TOBACCO

Earlier today the House Energy Committee adopted a revised version of HR 1108, legislation permitting the FDA to regulate the sale of tobacco.  The revisions were part of Subcommittee Chairman Frank Pallone’s (D-NJ) Manager’s Amendment to address the concerns of petroleum retailers.

The bill now goes to the House Floor for consideration where it will likely pass. However, it is expected President Bush would veto any legislation that reaches his desk.
