Nebraska Taxpayers! Lawmakers are trying to balance the budget by unreasonably taxing consumers of a legal product. They're considering a 56 percent cigarette tax increase.
Legislators are considering raising the cigarette tax to $1 per pack. That's about a 56 percent increase of the current cigarette tax.
Make your voice heard. Legislators need to hear that you are opposed to this tax. Cigarettes are already unfairly taxed compared to other consumer goods. In Nebraska, the tax on a pack of cigarettes is already equal to the tax on 37 six-packs of beer, 34 bottles of wine and 23 gallons of gas.
Tell your legislators that they should vote "NO" on the proposed cigarette tax increase. Let them know that you make the informed decision to use a legal product and shouldn't be penalized because of your choices.
