Indiana Voters Support Increasing Cigarette Tax

It may soon cost more for a pack of cigarettes in Indiana.

A new poll finds 62% of registered voters support increasing the state's cigarette tax a dollar per pack, but only if money is used to fund health and anti-smoking programs.

Governor Daniels asked lawmakers to increase the cigarette tax by at least 25 cents.

The additional state revenue would go towards health insurance for low-income Hoosiers and immunizations for children.

The current cigarette tax in Indiana is 55 1/2 cents per pack.
