Increasing the state tax on tobacco saves both lives and money by preventing kids from smoking and reducing the toll of cancer and heart disease on our health and our economy. This initiative prevents 93,000 Montanans from losing their health coverage. It also provides needed funds for veterans’ suicide prevention programs, long-term care services to help seniors and people with disabilities stay in their homes, and programs to prevent kids from smoking and help smokers quit. This initiative will help ensure a healthy and productive workforce, creates thousands of jobs for nurses and other medical staff, and helps our rural hospitals stay open and provide people across the state the care they need.
