Tobacco tax

Raising tobacco tax

Regarding “Missouri Senate adopts substitute education bill, adds language to limit instruction on ‘human sexuality,’ STDs” (Feb. 24): Stop Missouri tax money from being taken away from Missouri elementary and secondary education.

Any money taken from Missouri public schools must be equally replaced by taxing: marijuana sales, tobacco, internet sales, lottery sales, casino gambling sales and any other sale items not necessary to maintaining life.

I hope all educators will contact legislators to stop Missouri Senate Bill 55 and other similar bills.
