Yes, that is less than 50%

The Penn State Daily Collegian, “State's tobacco prevention receives 'F' grade”:

Pennsylvania spends less than 50 percent of what the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends it spend on tobacco prevention, said Deborah Brown, CEO of ALA of the Mid-Atlantic.

The CDC recommends Pennsylvania spend $155.5 million on prevention and cessation, she said.

Currently, the commonwealth only spends about $14.7 million, she said.
