Rock County Youth 2 Youth Coordinator Debbie Fischer says a recent survey by Public Opinion Strategies shows most voters would support legislation to move all tobacco products behind the sales counter.


Fischer says putting the products behind the counter would influence the attitude of young people, and reduce the enticement of flavored tobacco products for even younger children.


Fischer says the survey also shows four-out-of-five respondents favored a recent decision by the Joint Finance Committee to maintain funding for tobacco prevention and control programs.
