Raise a Hand for Kids? Or Businesses?

Attorney General Chris Koster, speaking to the St. Louis Chamber last week – see the article here (thanks to the peerless Combest) – offered a proposal to raise the tobacco tax to fund incentives for businesses and jobs.

 

This proposal would interfere with another proposal to raise the tobacco tax already underway and in the midst of listening sessions with stakeholders.  It would earmark the money to help kids.  See the website here.
