Tobacco Control Laws: Implementation and Enforcement

Appendix A
TEXAS CASE STUDY

INTRODUCTION

Historically, the anti-tobacco forces in Texas have been unsuccessful in passing significant statewide tobacco control legislation -- both with respect to clean indoor air and teen access. To a large extent, the failure to enact such legislation stems from the success of the tobacco industry in creating roadblocks in the state's House of Representatives as well as from a general antipathy toward passing legislation that is viewed by many as an attempt to regulate personal behavior ( Jacobson, Wasserman, and Raube, 1993). In fact, according to several observers, a series of repeated setbacks in the state legislature has led anti-tobacco activists to virtually abandon their efforts to pass a statewide clean indoor air bill and instead to focus on ensuring that the tobacco industry fails to have legislation enacted that would preempt local tobacco control initiatives. Interestingly, while the prospects for passage of a statewide clean indoor air act appear dim, a number of interviewees held out the possibility that a teen access bill might pass the legislature.

The failure to enact a statewide tobacco control bill has left many proponents of tougher smoking laws with a deep sense of cynicism. One observer noted that

You have to be very suspicious of any [tobacco control] law that's passed on the state level. Many of us would give up trying to pass a meaningful statewide law if we could be guaranteed that the legislature would never pass a preemption bill.
