Voters might have resuscitated the push for increased tobacco taxes when they rejected increased car tag fees this November. The car tag fees were on the ballot to fund a statewide trauma care network. Now business groups -- who campaigned for the trauma care measure -- are urging lawmakers to increase the tobacco tax in the upcoming legislative session
Over a hundred people rallied at the state capital in Atlanta Tuesday to support an amendment which would raise money for the state’s trauma care network. Amendment 2 would create an annual ten dollar tag fee to fund the ailing system.
