2018 TOBACCO TAX
the tobacco tax harms retailers and burdens lower-income earners. While curbing
tobacco use is a goal of increasing the tobacco tax, this does little to find long-lasting
revenue sources for the state as the government will collect less revenue over
time. As legislators consider funding solutions for the upcoming budget, it is
important to let your senator know that an increase in the tobacco tax is bad
for Kentucky, your business and customers.
Ask Your Senator to Vote YES on HB 2
Please urge your senator to vote YES on House Bill 2 to make necessary improvements to Kentucky's workers' compensation system that will provide better care for injured workers and more affordable workers' compensation costs for Kentucky businesses.
