Tobacco Enforcement Section
The Tobacco Enforcement Section (TES) of the Public Protection Division promotes the health of Pennsylvania citizens by working to decrease the incidence of smoking throughout the Commonwealth.
The $206 billion Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) with the Tobacco Industry has given rise to numerous legal issues which are handled by the Tobacco Enforcement Section.
Primary roles of the Tobacco Enforcement Section include monitoring compliance with the payment provisions in the MSA; enforcing restrictions placed upon the Tobacco Industry in the areas of marketing, advertising, promotions, and sponsorship; working to make current laws dealing with tobacco issues work more effectively; and, defending the MSA and other tobacco legislation against court challenges.
