A proposal that will raise the cigarette tax by a dollar will be heard TODAY in a committee. We need to tell members of the committee to support the cigarette tax increase so it can move forward. Please click here to send your message now!
This issue should be heard around 1:30 PM; please send your message before Noon so it can be fully considered. This bill has already passed one stage of process and we want to keep the momentum going!
Tobacco taxes have proven to be one of the most effective ways of reducing smoking and preventing youths from starting. With tobacco use being a leading cause of preventable death in the state and a major risk factor for heart disease, passing the proposed bill will be a huge win in the fight against heart disease.
With your help, we will pass this tobacco tax increase and reduce smoking in New Mexico. Again, please take action before noon today and share your voice.
