Description
This collection contains documents collected and created by the American Lung Association of Sacramento-Emigrant Trails (ALASET). The documents deal primarily with Proposition 99, the California Tobacco Tax Legislation passed in 1988, from the failure of legislative efforts, through the creation of the Coalition for a Healthy California, ballot qualification, passage, and subsequent fights to keep the moneys going to prevention activities.
Background
The American Lung Association of Sacramento-Emigrant Trails (ALASET) began as the Sacramento County Tuberculosis Association to fight this disease. Funded largely by the sale of Christmas Seals, the association focused on "wellness" and prevention. The goal of the American Lung Association remains the prevention of the spread of lung disease, with programs addressing tuberculosis, tobacco addiction, air pollution, and asthma. ALASET was a key member of the Coalition for a Healthy California and instrumental in the passage of Proposition 99 and other key legislative battles over the taxation and control of smoking.
