Support $1 per pack cigarette tax increase

Dear [Decision Maker],

As you build your final budget, please support increasing the cigarette tax by at least $1 per pack and establishing a tax on other tobacco products at 40% of wholesale. This measure would prevent 48,100 kids from smoking, save $2.19 billion in health care costs, and save 32,200 lives.




I wanted to make sure you saw the recent press coverage on increasing tobacco taxes in Pennsylvania.
