Moore On The Florida Tobacco Settlement

— Host Renee Montagne talks to Mississippi Attorney General Michael Moore about the tobacco industry's 11-Billion dollar settlement with the state of Florida. The Florida settlement, which was announced yesterday, is similar to one that cigarette-makers concluded with Mississippi a month ago. Moore also helped negotiate the tentative settlement in the class action lawsuit brought by dozens of states against the tobacco industry. That deal requires the approval of Congress and the President and is expected to require further negotiation.
