State lawmakers are being left with a decision that could leave New York smokers fuming. Governor David Paterson plans to raise the price of cigarettes a dollar-sixty-a-pack. The cigarette tax in New York would hit 4.35 per pack, the highest in the nation. The governor is including the proposal in next emergency spending bill. State lawmakers must decide on Monday whether to approve the tax hike in tobacco products or shut down state government.
