1989 Jan 11 Savarese has sent the CONFIDENTIAL list of network economists to Debbie Schoonmaker and Carol Hyrcaj who shared responsibility for the Tax Hearing Readiness project at the Tobacco Institute.

This memorandum includes information on the industry's ability to respond to proposals to:

  • increase federal excise taxes on tobacco products;
  • earmark excise taxes to fund federal programs; and
  • reduce/eliminate tobacco tax deductability for advertising.

It provides the arguments that should be used by the economists, some think-tanks which will provide support, a list of members of Congress who are seen as allies, and includes this list of available economists:
