Date:2/26/2008

"By increasing the cigarette tax to fund tobacco prevention and other vital health initiatives, House Bill 443 will deliver significant health and economic benefits that Kentucky residents need and deserve," said William V. Corr, Executive Director of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. "We urge Kentucky's leaders to support this worthwhile legislation, which will prevent kids from smoking, improve health in Kentucky and save taxpayers money by reducing smoking-caused health care costs."

Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death in the United States. In Kentucky, tobacco claims 7,700 lives each year and costs the state $1.5 billion annually in health care bills, including $487 million in Medicaid payments alone. Currently, 28.6 percent of Kentucky adults smoke, which is the highest smoking rate in the country. Government expenditures related to tobacco amount to a hidden tax of $601 every year on every Kentucky household. Nearly 25 percent of Kentucky high school students smoke, and 7,600 more kids become smokers every year.
