A national tobacco settlement may never get Conressional approval.
But if it does, Virginia should have a full-time staffer on Capitol Hill, a full-scale economic impact study done by a renowned economist, and a commission of tobacco farmers and dealers to advise the politicians.
(----------------)

Those are the final recommendations of a task force appointed last summer by Governor George Allen.
A one hundred page report released today calls Virginia tobacco farmers "an at risk group" and bills itself as "a road map" for protecting the state's economic interests in the deal.
The report also says it's the first time the state's known that 128- thousand Virginians are directly or indirectly employed by the tobacco industry.
Virginia is the nation's second largest tobacco manufacturer and the number one exporter of tobacco.
