Smoking Prevention Programs Get Low Funding

DES MOINES (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
   Smoking prevention programs in Iowa are not getting recommended funding.
   Public health organizations released numbers on December 9th showing the amount of money each state's government gives to anti-tobacco services.
   Iowa is sticking close to the national average of 13%.
   The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends the state pay about $36.7 million dollars of tobacco revenue toward the programs.  Iowa actually gives about $5.1 million dollars or 14%.
   Only two states in the U.S. actually meet the requirements.  Iowa was ranked 24th.
