Mayor Bloomberg and City Council have certainly enacted some tough legislation to combat smoking across the city, and city officials say smoking sales have gone down. But an anti-smoking group says the state government hasn't done enough.
The people at The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids ranked New York 21st among states who fund anti-smoking programs.
According to the group, New York spends about $40 million a year on tobacco prevention programs out of the $254 million that is recommended.
They also say the state broke a promise to use all or most of the money from an historic tobacco company settlement 15 years ago.
