Cigarette tax hike bill fails in Wyoming House

    House Bill 282 was defeated Wednesday by a 33-24 vote in the Wyoming House of Representatives.

    The bill would have added a 50 cent per pack increase to cigarettes sold in Wyoming.

    Currently, Wyoming levies a tax of 60 cents per pack, the bill would have raised it to a $1.10 tax.


    A separate bill that would have increased taxes by $1.00 per pack failed earlier in the House Revenue Committee.

    The bill would have subjected electronic cigarettes to state taxes as well.
