WIN - WIN - WIN

Dear [Decision Maker],

You have before you an opportunity to WIN Gold for all Mississippians. I am asking you to vote on increasing the state tobacco tax by $1.50 per pack.

Why would this be a WIN for our state and important to your constituents?

Raising the state's tobacco tax by $1.50 per pack will save lives:
14,000 premature smoking-caused deaths prevented
22,800 kids prevented from becoming adult smokers
26,500 current adult smokers who would quit

Raising the state's tobacco tax by $1.50 per pack will generate much needed revenue:
Projected new annual revenue of $166.8 million
$1.01 billion savings in long-term healthcare costs savings from adult and youth smoking declines.

Raising the state's tobacco tax by $1.50 per pack is supported by Mississippians:
71.8% of Mississippians surveyed by the Mississippi State Social Science Research center supported a tobacco tax


Please do your part and vote this legislation out of your committee.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
