Dear [Decision Maker],

As a volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I am writing to urge you to cosponsor the "Tobacco Tax and Enforcement Reform Act", S. 826, introduced by Senators Lautenberg, Durbin, Harkin and Blumenthal. The bill would increase the federal cigarette excise tax by 94 cents as well as to increase the federal taxes on all other tobacco products and provide for better enforcement of tobacco tax collection and crack down on illicit tobacco activities.

The evidence that higher federal excise taxes on cigarettes and all other addictive and deadly tobacco products will save lives is indisputable. You can help save lives by cosponsoring and moving Congress to enact S. 826

Thank you for your consideration of this critical health matter.
