In Alaska, two bills (House Bill 5002e and Senate Bill 5002e) propose to increase the tax on cigarettes by $ per pack, increase the tax on tobacco products from 75 percent to 100 percent of the wholesale price, and impose a tax on electronic cigarettes at 75 percent of the wholesale price. Senate Bill 4001d, which increases the tax on cigarettes by $1 per pack, raises the tax on tobacco products from 75 percent to 100 percent of the wholesale price and imposes a tax on electronic cigarettes at 75 percent of the wholesale price, was reintroduced on July 13, 2016 at the start of the state legislature’s current special session. SB4001d remains in the Senate Finance and Labor and Commerce Committees.
