Default Re: UTAH tax on Tobbaco

Here in AZ we had a school system that was failing because of a budget crisis, and our Police force that would have to lay off multiple officers for budget reasons as well. I was sure they would start taxing tobacco, but instead they had us vote on Prop 100, which was a 1 cent increase on sales tax for about 3 years.

Of course it passed and our schools didn't have to lay off multiple teachers. The point is there is a better way to raise funds than to push small business owners out of the market just becasuse they sell tobacco.
