Illinois could hike cigarette tax by $1-per-pack.
Public health advocates and anti-smoking lawmakers hope aiming for smokers’ wallets can raise money and / or curb smoking.

Senate President John Cullerton (D-Chicago) (pictured) joined medical groups for a news conference at the Capitol Tuesday to announce a proposal to increase the cigarette tax by a dollar a pack.

“The governor’s proposal in cigarette taxes was actually pretty modest,” Cullerton said. “We have tripled his initial request, because we know that we can actually affect behavior.”

The current tax on a pack of smokes is $1.98. The governor had proposed a 32-cent increase.

They are going to need to hike it about 100 bucks a pack just to make their pension payments.

Re: Illinois could hike cigarette tax by $1-per-pack.
then people will grow their own tobacco plants and do it themselves

can they outlaw people from growing it and confine them to only corpatrate tobacco..after all they can claim the public growing of tobacco is unsafe and can only be done safely by corporations

If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
