While the budget dominated much of the legislative session that ended in May, lawmakers made great strides in passing laws that include solid public policy measures to improve health and create a healthier state.

OKLAHOMA CITY (June 8, 2017) – Attorneys representing two tobacco companies on Wednesday asked the Oklahoma State Supreme Court to consider the legality of a cessation policy package that includes language that keeps all state-owned and state-leased property tobacco free, encourages additional cessation strategies and increases the price of cigarettes.

OKLAHOMA CITY (May 31, 2017) – The TSET Board of Directors approved 23 incentive grant awards for communities, school districts and school sites at their quarterly meeting this month.

In total, $172,500 was awarded to 6 communities, 16 school districts and 1 school site as part of the TSET Healthy Communities and Healthy Schools Incentive Grant programs.

Prague, OK (May 19, 2017) – Prague Public School District on Friday was honored for their efforts to improve health through the Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust (TSET) Healthy School District Incentive Grant program.

Noble, OK (May 12, 2017) – The City of Noble was honored Friday for its efforts to improve health and quality of life with a TSET Healthy Communities Incentive Grant.

Noble received a $25,000 TSET Healthy Communities Incentive Grant for making all city property tobacco-free and vapor-free, adopting street and zoning policies that improve walkability and promoting community gardens and farmer markets. All of these efforts help encourage residents to live healthy, active, tobacco-free lifestyles.
