Coalition to announce ballot initiative to raise ND tobacco tax
BISMARCK – A group of partners is proposing a ballot measure to increase the tobacco tax in North Dakota, after state lawmakers defeated two efforts last year to raise the tax for the first time since 1993. The coalition, Raise it for Health North Dakota, will announce its plans during a press conference at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the North Dakota Association of Counties building at 1661 Capitol Way in Bismarck.
Kristie Wolff, program manager of tobacco control and advocacy for the American Lung Association in North Dakota, said the coalition would not release any details about the ballot initiative before then.
