Monday Map: California Prop. 29 and State Cigarette Excise Taxes

May 14, 2012

Today's Monday Map is a repeat of our cigarette tax map from a few weeks ago, with one change: it shows how the state rankings would change if California voters pass California Proposition 29, the Tobacco Tax for Cancer Research Act - a $1.00/20-pack increase in the cigarette excise tax. 

Currently, California's cigarette excise tax stands at $0.87/20-pack, giving the state the 32nd highest cigarette tax in the country. Should California pass Proposition 29, the tax would increase to $1.87, and would rank 15th highest.
