House panel steps into Joe Camel probe
In a rare display of congressional intervention, a House subcommittee is demanding access to the Federal Trade Commission’s 3-year-old investigation of R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Co.’s Joe Camel and campaign. Rep. Al Swift (D. Wash.) has asked an aide to review all materials the FTC has collected during the probe and determine Its status. Rep. Swift is chairman of the House Energy 1 Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Transportation & Hazardous Materials, which has regulatory jurisdiction over the FTC.
