14 Mar Urge the Chicago City Council to Oppose $.90 Cigar Tax During Wednesday Meeting
Mayor Rahm Emanuel has proposed a $.90 per cigar tax that is currently pending in City Council. This measure is part of a larger package that also includes a provision to increase the age to purchase tobacco products from 18 to 21. If passed and enacted, this tax increase would be devastating to retail tobacconists in Chicago.
The City Council is expected to vote on this measure during the March 16 City Council meeting. Click on the button below to contact the members of the City Council TODAY and express your opposition to a $.90 cigar tax.
