KPHA Supports Tobacco Tax Proposal

The Kansas Public Health Association supports a $1.50 per pack tax increase on cigarettes and increasing taxes on other tobacco products (OTP) to 58 percent of wholesale value. Both proposals are currently before the Kansas Legislature and could become part of the final budget elected leaders will approve in May.

The Kansas Public Health Association’s mission is to “promote and improve population health in Kansas.” We support these tax increases because they are simple, public health solutions to the economic and social burdens of tobacco use.

Thank you to our 2014 KPHA conference sponsors.

KPHA is Kansas's leading public health advocacy association!
