JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A group that opposes a plan to raise the tax on tobacco products in Missouri says local governments could lose money if the measure passes in November.
The ballot issue would raise state cigarette taxes from 17 cents to 90 cents per pack and also increase taxes on other tobacco products.
But, a group of convenience store owners says a study by an economist shows that the increased taxes could lower sales, which will cut into sales tax revenue.
