Tobacco Tax Reduction at the State Legislature

The Minnesota Legislature had choices.  I believe they made the wrong choice.

The Minnesota Legislature could have used surplus tax money to reduce property taxes and make owning a home more affordable.  Additionally, the tax on tobacco could have helped low income people with housing which would have been a better choice than providing lower cost cigarettes and cigars.

Here is an opinion published in the Post Bulletin on June 13:

“Our new: Only the tobacco industry benefits from tax cut”
