Poll: Should Louisiana Legislature Override Expected Jindal Veto Of Tobacco Tax
Written by 

Louisiana legislatureLouisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has vowed to veto what he calls a cigarette tax. The Louisiana legislature has voted to extend the 4-cents per pack tax that has been called a “temporary” tax.

Jindal considers the tax to be a “new tax” but the legislature deems the action to be an extension of an existing tax, not a new tax.

 Jindal has made a plea to his fellow republicans not to override his veto which the Louisiana legislature is set to do.  It requires a 2/3 vote in the legislature to override the veto.

If the legislature overrides Jindal’s veto, it will only be the third time since the enactment of the 1974 constitution and is deemed to be a major embarrassment to a sitting governor.

Currently, Republicans control both the Louisiana House and the Senate.

Poll: Assuming Governor Jindal vetoes the cigarette tax extension, should the legislature over-ride the Governor’s veto.
