State Senate Unanimously Votes To Raise Cigarette Tax
Anyway. The Senate passed the proposed tax unanimously, as in 39-0. The legislature in Illinois couldn't even impeach Blagojevich unanimously.
Though, they've made some concession. They will not tax tobacco products made in Florida, just those sold in Florida. So the makers of 305 cigarettes and cigar rollers aren't unfairly taxed more than out of state companies.
