JFC to debate tobacco tax increase today

The Joint Finance Committee is set to meet at 4 p.m. today and one of the topics they'll discuss is the proposed cigarette and tobacco products tax increase. If the cigarette tax stays in tact (75-cent increase), WI would have the 5th highest cigarette tax in the nation.

The tobacco tax increase did not come up as part of the debate yesterday, but may be debated later today (5/28).
