    Access to Cessation Services

The American Lung Association in Virginia recognizes that these bold goals will only be met in Virginia if these following three actions are taken by our elected officials:

  1. Restore funding for tobacco use prevention programs through the Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth and the Virginia Department of Health Tobacco Use Control Project;
  2. Pass legislation to eliminate smoking in all public places and workplaces, including all restaurants and bars, and remove preemption of stronger local ordinances; and
  3. Expand access to the Virginia Quitline by increasing funding for state tobacco cessation services.
