SB 845 This is the smoking "fee" that replaced the $1.50 per pack cigarette tax that didn't pass.
|Here is a bill that was chosen for scoring the RINO Index, |
& why this bill is bad for the average Oklahoman.
Since they basically lied and called it a fee they didn't need a super majority to pass the "fee" but it has already being challenged in court as it is unconstitutional for two reasons. First it is a tax, not a fee, and second it was passed in the last five days of the legislature and that is not allowed. This is a new $257 million dollar tax placed on Oklahoma smokers.
