Budget Q&A - 50% program funding increase

Q: Are you disappointed that the Tobacco Prevention and Control Program (TPCP) only received a $5 million per year increase?

A: Of course. Wisconsin's TPCP is still incomplete, and valuable elements of the program will continue to go unfunded during this budget biennium. Given the intense disagreements between lawmakers regarding this budget, however, we were lucky to see an increase in program funding at all.

Our work isn't done. Keep your eyes open for a blog post soon about the new recommended funding level for WI's TPCP just released by the CDC.
