Senate and Final: Funding is provided for the Washington State Institute for Public Policy (WSIPP) to conduct a comprehensive study of tobacco and e-cigarette prevention programs that will yield the highest public health benefit and reduce tobacco use. In conducting this study, WSIPP will identify: (a) the most effective population-based approaches and what targeted populations will yield the greatest return on investment and (b) other state models, including the "friday night light" program in California, that yield the greatest likelihood of reducing state health care costs. WSIPP will work with the DOH to determine which programs can be brought to scale most efficiently. The report is due December 31, 2014.
