Re: House Bill No. 591 by Representative Ritchie

Dear Mr. Speer:

House Bill 591 repeals the June 30, 2012 sunset on the 4/20 of one cent tax on cigarettes and makes the tax permanent. I have made a commitment to the taxpayers of Louisiana to oppose all attempts to raise taxes.

For this reason, I have vetoed House Bill No. 591 and hereby return it to the House of Representatives.


Bobby Jindal
