Smoke 'em if you got 'em

Kptv reports-
Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongoski is expected to ask state legislators for a record increase in the state’s cigarette tax to fund his Healthy Kids Plan on Monday.

The plan, part of Kulongoski’s re-election campaign, is aimed at making sure every child in Oregon has access to health care.

The proposal would boost the tax on a pack of cigarettes by 85 cents, pushing it just over the $2.00 mark.

Light 'em up!
