Cigarette Tax Hike in Agriculture Committee

The cigarette tax hike bill was considered in the Ag committee today. Here are some short clips from the committee. The tax hike was reduced to 20 cents from 40 cents and Rep. John Mark Windle offered an amendment to direct revenue to a food tax reduction for WIC foods like baby foods etc. When the bill gets to Budget Sub, the full hike may be reinstated.
