Proposition 203: A Fiscal Hazzard Arizonans Should Oppose

On November 7, Proposition (Prop.) 203, or the Arizona Early Childhood Development and Health Initiative, will ask Arizonans to increase the tax rate 80 cents on a pack of cigarettes or a 68% increase, from $1.18 to $1.98, and also varying amounts on other tobacco products (OTP). This would propel the state to the sixth highest tobacco tax rate in the nation.
