HOUSE APPROVES $1 HIKE FOR CIGARETTES

The House approved HB 1001, which among other things, would boost the cigarette excise tax by 100%, or $1.00 per pack. The bill would put Indiana's cigarette taxes on par with Illinois and Michigan, 40-cents higher than Ohio, and $1.40 higher than Kentucky. Nearly every House Republican supported the bill, while House Democrats opposed it.
