70% of KS voters - including me - support this increase

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a constituent and volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I want to let you know that I stand with 70% of Kansas voters who support an increased tax on cigarettes and other tobacco products. A recent poll shows there is overwhelming support among Kansas voters for this tax increase.



With a $1.50-per-pack increase in the cigarette tax, 16,200 Kansas children will be prevented from becoming adult smokers and 20,000 current smokers will be prompted to quit. In a year when the legislature is considering a number of options to address a significant budget shortfall, this option sticks out as a way to generate needed revenue while impacting public health. It makes dollars and sense for Kansas.

Please support a tax increase that saves lives while generating revenue.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
