Congressman Price can be expected to oppose any harsh regulations in relation to tobacco, put forward by the FDA.
Price’s views are known to have been generally aligned with that of the Republican party pretty much all throughout his career, hence can be expected to oppose any harsh regulations in relation to tobacco put forward by the FDA.
