Indiana House approves plan for $1 per-pack cigarette tax increase

Posted: Updated:

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.
