Option to use tobacco settlement money still alive A proposal to raise North Dakota's cigarette tax to pay for an expansion of the University of North Dakota's medical school has failed in the state House.
There are two components to House Bill 1353, the controversial bill that takes money away from the state’s anti-tobacco program and gives it to UND’s School of Medicine and Health Sciences to fund an expansion.
Proponents of North Dakota’s tobacco control program found a frosty reception Monday when they came to the Capitol to oppose the dismantling of their program to pay for another program at UND to increase the number of health care workers in the state.
North Dakota legislators are working feverishly to pull funding (HB 1353) so that this disease can run amok, unchecked and untreated like it has since the original tobacco companies imported slave labor to harvest tobacco crops.
I urge Herald readers to call their legislators, let them know that every vote does count and 162,774 of those votes wanted this money designated for tobacco prevention. Tell them not to support HB 1353.
Diverting Measure 3 funds away from the people’s clear choice on funding tobacco prevention and control would be irresponsible.
In North Dakota, we’re serious about controlling health care costs. Reduction of harm from tobacco is essential.
The only reason North Dakota started a medical school was to “enhance the quality of life” by producing doctors who would practice in North Dakota. Unfortunately, most of the graduating students are not staying here.
