This collection documents the activities of the Alameda County Tobacco Control Program (CTCP) from 1988-1997.
The Alameda County Tobacco Control Program (CTCP) is one of the local lead agencies (LLAs) designated by the California State
Legislature through the California Department of Health, Tobacco Control Section to create tobacco education programs and
receive Proposition 99 educational moneys. Proposition 99 was a California statewide referendum passed in 1988 that raised
the excise tax on tobacco sales. Proposition 99 added an additional 25 cent tax on each package of cigarettes and a proportional
tax increase on other tobacco products. This tax raised California's tobacco tax to be among the highest in the United States
and designated that a portion of the tax moneys would go for anti-tobacco health education projects.
