The Indiana cigarette tax has failed. The 52-44 vote against HB 1008, which would have raised the Indiana cigarette tax by a quarter, is simply irresponsible. How can raising the second lowest cigarette tax in the nation by a mere 25 cents not pass in the House? The most frustrating aspect of this Bill’s failure is that only 19 Republicans backed up their Governor. I’m thankful that my State Representative – Amos Thomas – was one of the nineteen. I’m disappointed that my former State Rep – Bob Bischoff – voted against HB 1008.
