Explanation

For the first blank, you need something to contrast with “subsequent.” Thus, you need a word that means “at first.” In the second blank, you need something that will contrast with having “little impact” and will match the idea of a law now gaining funding and enforcement. Only given teeth has this (obviously metaphorical) meaning.

Initially, given teeth.
