Wyoming lawmakers want to see higher cigarette tax – 19 de octubre de 2015 – EEUU

BUFFALO, Wyo. — A legislative panel recommended a tobacco tax increase Tuesday morning to curb the state smoking rate, although it did not weigh in on what that rate should be.

Members of the Joint Labor, Health and Social Services Interim Committee also created a funding priority list from more than 20 state programs that use payments and interest from the Tobacco Settlement Trust Income Account, which earns money from cigarette companies as a result of a 1998 lawsuit. The account is projected to have a $14.6 million shortfall by 2018.
