FreedomWorks California is springing to action on a proposed California tax hike. State leader Matt Schumsky writes: “In less than two months, Californians will vote on a new $2.60 per pack tax on cigarettes. The new tobacco tax would bring the total cigarette tax to $3.47 a pack. The ballot measure to increase taxes by more than 250 percent is called Proposition 86, or the Tobacco Tax Act.Ã¢â‚¬Â
