Please support the proposed tobacco tax increase of $1.50

Dear [Decision Maker],

Today volunteers from the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network are in the Capitol meeting with their lawmakers.

While I can't be in Jackson with them, as your constituent I want you to know I join them in support of a cigarette tax increase of $1.50 per pack.



Increasing the cigarette tax by $1.50 per pack will not only save lives but would provide projected new annual revenue of $166.82 million and $1.01 billion from long-term health care cost savings from adult and youth smoking declines.

I hope I can count on your support.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
