New Hampshire Poll

A new poll by the Becker Institute shows strong support for Governor Lynch's proposed cigarette tax hike. He aims to add 28 cents to the already existing 52 cent rate. 78% of respondents think that's a good way to balance the budget. His bill has already passed the General Court (house) and will probably be contentious in the state senate.

If it becomes law, this will be a good step towards revenue adequacy for New Hampshire.
