Louisiana Citizens for Tobacco Rights Action Alert!

Surprise, surprise! Politicians in Louisiana would like smokers to foot the bill in order to balance the state budget. Nice, huh? Where's our "free" health insurance?

When legislators return to Baton Rouge this spring, they will be looking for ways to fill the gaps created by Governor Jindal’s proposal to eliminate the personal and corporate income tax

In addition to increasing the state sales tax, the legislature will consider nearly TRIPLING the state cigarette tax.  If passed, adult smokers will pay $1.41 per pack and over $14.00 per carton in state taxes alone!
