Tobacco Tax Increase En Route to Quinn's Desk


Illinois lawmakers have approved a hefty increase on tobacco taxes, a key plank of Governor Pat Quinn’s Medicaid reform efforts.

 

Quinn says he will quickly sign the increase, which will raise the tax on cigarettes by a dollar a pack, to a total of $1.98.

 

The measure will also double taxes on other forms of tobacco.

 

The proceeds, combined with additional federal matching funds, will generate more than 700-million dollars for the cash-strapped Medicaid system.
