HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Wolf wants to raise Pennsylvania's cigarette tax by $1 per pack.
If approved, smokers would have to pay $2.60 per pack instead of the current $1.60.
It's one of several tax hikes Wolf proposed Tuesday in his budget plan for the coming year.
The Democratic governor is seeking new revenues to support public education and cut property taxes. But Republican lawmakers oppose his plan.
Wolf's statewide cigarette tax would take effect Oct. 1 and raise about $358 million.
