Thank you Representative Daley for Supporting Tobacco Taxes
Dear [Decision Maker],
Thank you for standing in support of the FY 2016-17 revenue package, passed by the Pennsylvania legislature, that increased the cigarette tax by $1.00 per pack, established a first time tax on smokeless and roll-your-own tobacco, and established a tax at 40 percent of wholesale on electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes).
These taxes will reduce tobacco use, prevent thousands of kids from becoming addicted tobacco users, help current users quit, and ultimately save lives. Additionally, these taxes are already raising much-needed revenue for Pennsylvania.Any effort to rollback this tobacco tax package or change the definition of e-cigarettes will have a negative impact on the health and economic benefits to the state.
Thank you for your support of the tobacco tax package as passed in July 2016 by opposing all efforts to alter the revenue package, change product definitions, or lower the tax on any tobacco products.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
