Long Title:AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 30 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO TAXES ON TOBACCO PRODUCTS.
Synopsis of Orginal Bill:
(without Amendments)
This youth tobacco prevention bill eliminates the taxing disparity between moist snuff and “other tobacco products,” not including cigarettes.  It also raises the tax rate from 15% to 30% of the wholesale price, and designates tax revenue over $3.5 million to The Delaware Health Fund.  This bill does not affect taxes on cigarettes.  This bill attempts to make moist snuff and other tobacco products less attractive to minors by making them more expensive, as well as designating a new funding source for The Delaware Health Fund, which promotes preventive care for Delawareans in order to detect and avoid adverse health conditions.
