LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana smokers could pay the bill for a nearly $32 billion spending plan.
A $1 increase in the per-pack cigarette tax would help fund the two-year budget.
The House already approved the proposal.
Plans include more money for education, $10 million for the state's preschool pilot program, and $5 million for a new drug czar.
The plan now heads to the Senate for consideration.
