RI - Stop an outrageous 80% wholesale tax on vapor!

03.28.18 - House Finance Committee

Rise of the House (4:30 PM)

Rm 35 - State House



Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo is proposing an outrageous 80% wholesale tax on vapor products as part of the state’s FY2019 budget.


Considering that a 40% wholesale tax enacted in Pennsylvania has wiped out more than a third of the vapor businesses there, Gov. Raimondo’s 80% tax must be stopped.

Please take action now by sending a message
