Cigarette tax hike bill defeated in Wyoming House

A bill that would have increased Wyoming’s tax on cigarettes by 50 cents a pack has failed in the state House of Representatives.

House Bill 282 was defeated Wednesday on a 33-24 vote.

Wyoming currently levies a tax of 60 cents a pack on cigarettes. As originally introduced, the bill had proposed to raise the state tax to $1.10 per pack.

In addition, the proposal would have subjected electronic cigarettes to state taxes.

A separate bill that would have increased cigarette taxes by $1 a pack also failed earlier in the House Revenue Committee.
