LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Vote yes on Prop B to raise tobacco tax

Wednesday, October 31, 2012 | 6:00 a.m. CDT

The League of Women Voters urges voters to support Proposition B, the tobacco tax. If passed, it will have health and educational benefits.  It will reduce the number of smokers, especially among young people; provide programs to reduce and prevent tobacco use; and will provide needed funds for public education at all levels, elementary, secondary, college and university.
