HB 1630 -- Grants for Tobacco-Dependent Communities

Co-Sponsors:  Lawson, Kelly (27), Shields

This bill establishes the Tobacco-Dependent Communities
Revitalization Fund in the state treasury.  The fund may receive
appropriations from the state share of the Master Settlement
Agreement or from general revenue.

Moneys in the fund will be used solely for providing grants to
certain sponsoring organizations which provide plans to reverse
the dependence of tobacco-dependent communities on tobacco
production and that revitalize the area.  The Office of Rural
Development will administer the grant program.

No grant will be awarded after August 28, 2010.  Any moneys
remaining in the fund after August 28, 2016, will revert to
general revenue.

These provisions will expire on August 28, 2016.
