Call Your State Senator to Support Raising Indiana's Cigarette Tax
Indiana has the lowest cigarette tax in the Midwest. Raising tobacco prices is proven to be one of the most effective things we can do to help people quit and keep young people from starting. The American Lung Association in Indiana and our partner organizations are united calling for a $2.00 per pack increase in the cigarette tax to lower smoking rates and provide needed funding for public health in our state.
The Indiana House of Representatives recently proposed raising the tax by just 50 cents per pack. This is not enough to have a public health impact. So now we're calling on the Indiana Senate to do better.
As an advocate for lung health, will you make a quick call to your state senator's office to show your support for this policy that will lower smoking rates in Indiana and save lives?
