Proposition B Passes in Boone County, Fails Statewide

| November 7, 2012

Thank You, Boone County, for your overwhelming support of Proposition B.  In Boone County the proposed 73¢ tobacco tax passed with 60% of the vote.  Sixty-four percent (64%) of Columbia voters approved it. It was the right thing to do. Ultimately, it fell short statewide by 42,000 votes–1.6%.

(Original Post follows)

Rep. Kelly urges voters to support Proposition B, the increase in the state’s tobacco tax.  At 17¢––the lowest tobacco tax in the country––it is imperative that we take this opportunity to provide a minimum of $283M per year to our state’s public schools ($142M), our public colleges and universities ($85M), and smoking cessation and healthcare ($56M).

Please vote “YES” on Prop B on November 6th.
