Summary as passed Senate: (all summaries)

Tobacco Board; composition; assessment. Alters the member nomination process, tax rate, and other functions of the Tobacco Board (the Board). The bill removes the 90-day deadline for submission of industry nominees for a seat on the Board, as well as the requirement that there be two or more nominations for each seat. The bill removes from the Board the power to appoint a secretary and other employees. Finally, the bill raises the excise tax on tobacco from 20 cents to 40 cents per 100 pounds of tobacco harvested and renames it an assessment; authorizes the Board, at its discretion, to waive interest on the assessment when it is paid late or is left unpaid; and provides criteria for such waiver. This bill is identical to HB 2254.
