To the Editor:

State Sen. Matt Schmit has proven to be a champion for better health with his "yes" vote that will raise the state's tobacco tax.

This tobacco price increase will limit the number of youth who start smoking and save 47,700 Minnesota kids from becoming addicted adults. A higher tobacco price will also help many current smokers quit and save lives.

A majority of Minnesotans - 66 percent - supported raising the tobacco tax, and we want to thank him for his support. This is a huge win for Minnesota and he agrees that our children and health are major priorities. Well done, Senator Schmit.
