Your constituents believe in this proposal
Dear [Decision Maker],
A $1.50 cigarette tax increase is supported by most of your constituents, including me. As a volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I want to let you know that I support this tax increase because it improves health and saves lives.
Tobacco use is the #1 preventable cause of death and the #1 preventable cause of cancer. A $1.50 cigarette tax increase will prompt 20,000 current smokers to quit and prevent 16,200 Kansas children from becoming smokers.
This tax increase will improve the health of our community and workforce while bringing in needed revenue. I support this tax increase because it is the only option before you that saves lives while bringing revenue to Kansas.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
