States don't meet CDC-set spending levels for anti-smoking programs

A report finds nearly every state in the country is spending too little on anti-smoking efforts. A coalition of public health groups says only Maine, Delaware and Mississippi are meeting the minimum levels recommended by federal health officials. It says all states are spending a combined 538 million dollars on preventing smoking. That's about a-third of what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says should be spent. The head of one anti-smoking group says states are receiving billions of dollars from legal settlements with cigarette makers and through raising taxes on tobacco products. He says states are getting "more and more revenue" but spending "far too little" to cut the habit.
