A study co-authored almost a year ago by Michael D. LaFaive, director of the Morey Fiscal Policy Initiative at the Center, continues to garner media attention.

"Cigarette Taxes and Smuggling," released Dec. 2, 2008, and LaFaive were cited Friday in Chicago Talks and Saturday by NBC Chicago. Both media outlets addressed two major points in the study: higher cigarette taxes do not increase government revenue, and those higher taxes can also lead to more cigarette smuggling.
