Press Release from Americans for Democratic Action Regardng Cigarette Labeling and Advertising Act

Document Viewer

House passage of H.R. 3014 provoked strong opposition from health organizations and liberal advocacy groups. On June 24, 1965, Americans for Democratic Action issued this press release stating that the Senate-passed bill “is at least tolerable,” but urged President Johnson to veto the legislation if the House version permanently barring the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) action on health warning in advertising remained in the bill. A conference committee resolved the Senate and House differences on the moratorium by providing a four-year ban on FTC action. On July 6, the Senate adopted the conference report by a voice vote and on July 13, the House adopted the report by a 286 to 103 roll call vote. On July 27 President Johnson signed the bill into law without comment.
