WEBINAR: Reversing Preemption: A Colorado Case Study

March 14, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Counter Tools Healthy POS webinar series: Reversing Preemption – A Colorado Case Study

Preemption is the way by which the authority of a “lower” level of government is limited by a “higher” level of government. The tobacco industry and its allies have continued to use preemptive strategies to deter efforts made especially at the local-level. Preemption is one of the biggest challenges in tobacco control and can impede policy change. However, reversing preemption is possible! States like CO provide a good example of the process and path to reversing preemption. During this webinar, we will discuss Colorado’s experience with preemption and efforts made to advance policy within the state. Local-level case studies and the state preemption bill will be discussed to show Colorado’s path to reversing preemption as an example for others! Speakers will include:

  • Mandy Ivanov, Health Promotion Coordinator with Eagle County Public Health and Environment
  • Jodi Radke, Regional Director at the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids
  • Jill Bednare, Tobacco Policy Initiatives Supervisor at the Colorado Department of Health and Environment
  • Moderator: Jackie Boards, Project Director at Counter Tools
