The article reports on first comprehensive tobacco buyout legislation in the United States. Tobacco growers had grown accustomed to efforts at a buyout coming in fits and starts. In a chronological way, talk of a tobacco buyout began in the early 1990s but didn't get started in earnest until 1997. Former U.S. Rep. Charlie Rose, who at the time was chairman of the House Tobacco and Peanuts Subcommittee, mentioned the proposal in the early 1990s, as did former U.S. Sens. Jesse Helms of North Carolina and Wendell Ford of Kentucky.
