Is it true that the tax on cigarettes is going up again on New Year's Day?

It's true. During the past legislative session, state lawmakers approved increasing the state tax on a pack of cigarettes by 46 cents, from 24 cents per pack to 70 cents per pack. But the law also kicked in an additional 9 cents per pack on Jan. 1, 2003, bringing the total state tax on cigarettes to 79 cents per pack.
