Current law appropriates $5 million annually from the tobacco tax
cash fund to the department of public health and environment
(department) for breast and cervical cancer screenings. The bill expands

the use of the funds for additional cancer screenings. The bill changes the
name of the breast cancer screening fund to the cancer screening fund and
authorizes the money in the fund to be used for breast and cervical cancer
screenings, colorectal cancer screenings, and screenings for additional
screenable cancers.
The bill changes the makeup of the existing advisory board from
persons interested in health care and the promotion of breast cancer
screenings to include persons who are interested in health care and the
promotion of services for other screenable cancers. When making
recommendations to the executive director of the department concerning
cancer screening services, the bill requires the advisory board to allocate,
at a minimum, $2.5 million annually for breast and cervical cancer
screenings, $1 million annually for colorectal cancer screenings, and, if
feasible, money for screenings for additional screenable cancers.
