CT - Take action to prevent an outrageous tax on vapor products!

On September 8, 2017, Governor Dannel Malloy delivered a compromise budget to the Connecticut legislature that contained an outrageous 75% wholesale tax on vapor products and a $2.00/oz hike in the tax on smokeless tobacco (bringing the total tax to $3.00/oz).

Complicating matters is the fact that Connecticut has been without a budget for more than two months.

Please take action now and send a message to Governor Malloy and key lawmakers in the Connecticut legislature urging them to remove this tax proposal from the 2018-2019 budget.

Remember to make a call today too. The important numbers and talking points for you to use on your call are listed below.
