Vermont Task Force Recommends Funding Tobacco Control Programs
The Vermont Tobacco Task Force, made up of lawmakers and anti-tobacco advocates, recommends that the state spend two-thirds of the state's tobacco settlement money on anti-tobacco programs and the remaining third for other "tobacco-related" health programs.

Vermont expects to get $26 million a year from the tobacco settlement.
