Do you support a $1 increase in the state's cigarette tax?

It is March already and the State of Rhode Island has yet to formally decide how it will close the $360-odd million budget deficit by the end of June.

One thing that nearly every political leader agrees upon is the need to keep "broad-based" taxes at current levels. But one tax proposal still has seen some support on Smith Hill.

Do you think that raising the cigarette tax by $1 is the right thing to do help close the state budget gap?
