Tell the PA House to Pass an Amendment-Free Cigarette Tax

The $2-per-pack cigarette tax legislation was voted out of committee and is expected to go before the full house for a vote on Monday, September 22. Let's keep the pressure on!

Write to your State Representatives TODAY and tell them that our schools are in dire need of these funds. Tell them to pass cigarette tax legislation that is permanent and free of additional amendments, technicalities and conditions! If our schoolchildren are to receive the programs and services they deserve, we need Harrisburg to pass a clean cigarette tax bill!
