MSA MSA Settlement Proposals: Why Sign The MSA?
The MSA was executed on November 23, 1998 by 52 Settling States with the major tobacco companies and subsequently with numerous smaller manufacturers (collectively known as "Participating Manufacturers" or "PMs"). The MSA provides that in exchange for the agreement of the PMs to make specified payments to the Settling States estimated to exceed $200 billion through 2025 and their agreement to abide by extensive public health restrictions on the advertising, promotion and marketing of cigarettes, the Settling States agreed to release the PMs from claims by the States generally related to the use, sale, distribution, manufacture, development, advertising, marketing or health effects of, the exposure to, or research, statements, or warnings regarding, Tobacco Products.
