The Ohio Council for Reasonable Business Policy recently released a statement regarding the newly proposed tobacco tax in Ohio. A tax on tobacco is a tax on Ohioans. Ohio businesses and citizens are struggling to recover from one the most difficult economic downturns in history.
The majority of Ohioans, business leaders, and government officials on both sides of the aisle want our state to be economically healthy and vital. Piling on any new tax burden will crush the fragile recovery. Taxes are not the answer. Stand up for Ohio by saying no to new taxes on tobacco.
