WHAT: Auditor General Jack Wagner will release a special report on the results of public hearings he sponsored on state spending of tobacco settlementfunds intended to pay for adultBasic health insurance and other health-related programs like tobacco cessation and cancer research.
WHEN: 11 a.m., Thursday, June 2.
WHY: The Tobacco Settlement Act of 2001 specifically earmarked funds for adultBasic health insurance for low-income working Pennsylvanians and for other health-related programs. The General Assembly quietly diverted $1.34 billion in tobacco money, resulting in the cancellation of adultBasic health care coverage for 41,000 Pennsylvanians without public input.
