OH Representatives Propose State Funding of Emissions Tests.
According to AP, the plan calls for the use of funds received in late 2003 in the settlement of a tobacco case, with the total outlay for E-Check testing expected to be around $25 million.
"This is consistent with the goals of what those dollars have been set aside to do, which is public health and respiratory issues," said house speaker Jon Husted.
Despite the intentions of Husted and the other Republicans, however, AP noted that anti-tobacco activists argue that the funding should be used to support campaigns to help stop smoking.
