Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. MMWR Weekly. August 26, 2011;60(33):1124-1127.
CDC has been tracking state preemption of local tobacco control laws. This study examines policy changes from December 31, 2000 to December 31, 2010. Preemptive state tobacco control legislation prohibits local jurisdictions from enacting tobacco control laws that are more stringent than state law. The three types of policies that CDC has been tracking include those that restrict smoking in workplaces and public places; restrict tobacco advertising; and restrict youth access to tobacco products. Results showed that while the number of states that preempt local smoking restrictions has declined (from 18 to 12), there has been no progress made in reducing the number of states that preempt local advertising restrictions (18) and youth access restrictions (21 to 22).
