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.
Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.
