03 Jun Louisiana: Contact the Senate in Opposition to OTP Tax Increase
Amendments 7 and 9 to House Bill 119, introduced by the Senate Committee on Finance, include a 5% tax increase on premium cigars and a 17% tax increase on pipe tobacco. If passed and enacted, this legislation would be devastating to retail tobacconists across Louisiana who are already burdened by the highest taxes in the region. It is critical that we kill this misguided legislation before it reaches the Governor’s desk. This legislation is expected to receive a vote by the Senate on Friday, June 5.
