Campaign to Extend the Cigarette Tax

Featured Audio

The 30-cents-a-pack local tax on cigarettes to fund the arts is set to expire after next year unless voters OK a 10-year extension. Supports acknowledge a cigarette tax isn't ideal, but it has been a success. I'm Mike McIntyre and we'll hear the case for an extension tomorrow morning at 9 on the Sound of Ideas, and learn about alternative arts taxes in other communities. And we want to hear from you. Join us tomorrow right here on 90.3.
