Cigarette Tax Debate Continues

The debate over Indiana’s cigarette tax continues.

House democrats plan to introduce a health insurance plan this week that may include a four and a half cent increase.

That is far less than the 25-cent increase suggested by Governor Daniels.

He says raising Indiana’s cigarette tax would help provide health care coverage to at least 100-thousand low-income Hoosiers.

The current cigarette tax is 55 and half cents per pack.
