Checklist for Action



Another tool for success is a Checklist to track the progress of all the recommended activities on a timeline. The recommended activities on the checklist have been suggested by tobacco control program managers around the country who have played a role in efforts to raise tobacco excise taxes in their states. These recommended activities can be adapted to any state’s policy environment to optimize a tobacco control program’s contribution to statewide efforts to reduce tobacco use by raising the price of tobacco products. There are also blank spaces throughout the timeline for additional activities to be added and described.
