Today's Globe: FDA and tobacco, children's health bill, TB and ME's staff
A US Senate panel yesterday approved legislation sponsored by Senator Edward M. Kennedy (left) that, after decades of effort, would give the Food and Drug Administration broad regulatory authority over tobacco products, paving the way for additional restrictions on advertising, tougher warning labels, and reduced levels of addictive nicotine.
The House of Representatives passed legislation to triple the funding for a health insurance program for low-income children, defying a threatened veto by President Bush.
Four employees at the state medical examiner's office had positive reactions in tuberculosis skin tests, but none of them has an active case of the highly contagious disease, officials said yesterday.
