Dear [Decision Maker],
This bill is wrong for Wyoming. A fifty-cent per pack cigarette tax increase is simply not enough. It has been proven that tobacco companies will simply lower the cost of tobacco products by providing coupons and other incentives, so consumers never feel the effects of a small tax increase. And if they don't feel it, research shows your constituents won't quit this deadly addiction. Also, the bill does not increase a tax on other tobacco products (OTP). This increase is crucial to keep kids from seeking out dangerous and addictive non-cigarette tobacco products that will otherwise be attractive at a comparatively lower price.
