No Raise on Taxes for Cigarettes and Vapes

By  | 

CHEYENNE, Wyo. The bill would have taxed those products the same.

It would have also raised cigarette taxes 50 cents per pack.

Opponents feared it would have raised taxes without stopping us from smoking.

Some also didn't like money generated from the tax going into the general fund instead of helping combat smoking.

Cigarette taxes are currently 60 cents per pack.

Representatives will vote to reconsider the bill.

If it passes, they will vote again today.
