The General Assembly has sent a 50 cent cigarette tax increase bill (H. 3584) to Governor Sanford.  All but $10 million goes to fund, with the remainder divided between smoking cessation programs and MUSC’s Hollings Cancer Center for tobacco-related cancer research.

Governor Sanford will, in all likelihood, veto the legislation tomorrow.

It is critical that you call your House member (http://www.scstatehouse.gov/html-pages/housemembersd.html) and Senator (http://www.scstatehouse.gov/html-pages/senatemembersd.html) now and urge them to “vote to override the Governor’s veto on the cigarette tax bill”.
