WE NEED YOUR HELP! The Legislature is going to hear the cigarette tax bill this week. Increasing the cigarette tax by $1.50 will help keep hospitals and nursing homes open, fund mental health and maintain baby delivery services throughout the state. Call your legislators TODAY and URGE them to raise the cigarette tax by $1.50 to fund health care. Here's where to find their phone numbers --> INFO.
It is urgent that you contact Senator Scott’s office related to the cigarette tax. He needs to hear from our group how important the cigarette tax funding is for mental health. Please email or call him today. Here’s what you should say:
“Please keep the cigarette tax allocation percentages the same as last year which call for 28% to go to mental health.”
Then thank him for his support.
His office number is: (405)521-5522
